This is an example of utilizing the digital vet dental chart in a case of bone necrosis in a pit bull puppy that sustained a severe bite by its adult housemate. The patient presented at a local emergency facility for repair of the maxillary fracture. The fracture was reduced and the mucosa sutured. We saw this patient in Fort Myers ten days post repair. Anesthesia and evaluation with radiographs revealed that the bite lacerated the infraorbital neurovascular bundle eliminating the blood supply to the necrotic segment.
