Abstract: The article presents the results of using the smooth and full-threaded rods of different diameters in the treatment of limb fractures in cats in hardware structures made from parts of the VOSIS veterinary orthopedic set. A total of 22 cats have participated in the studies, which were divided into two groups according to the type of rods installed during the surgery: smooth rods were installed in the cats of the first group, and full-threaded rods ‒ in the cats of the second group. The work was aimed at conducting a comparative clinical study of using the smooth and full-threaded rods of different diameters in the treatment of fractures of various limb segments in cats. It has been shown that all cats that had undergone surgery successfully passed the postsurgical period. It has been revealed that the use of full-threaded rods provides higher stability of instrument structures. It has been established that the presence of flows at the full-threaded rods’ emergence points in the studied groups was less pronounced than in groups where smooth rods had been used.
