A raptor presents to the wildlife center with a history of trauma. No fractures are palpable. Over the course of one month as the bird is recovering, it becomes evident that the bird is sitting slightly hunched and has developed a slight limp. What could be the problem?
Fractures of the pelvic region can be difficult to palpate and often require radiographs. As the fracture heals, the joint if affected, may become limited in range of motion.
