This study aims to classify radiographically diagnosed pelvic fractures in cats (n = 103) and dogs (n = 80). The pelvic bone resembles a box structurally, and as a result of the trauma of this bone, multiple fractures usually occur. Radiographs of cats and dogs exposed to various traumas were evaluated and classified as ilium, ischium, pubis, acetabulum, sacroiliac luxations and symphysis pubis fractures. The mean age of the cases included in the study was 16.9 months in cats and 19.2 months in dogs. Pelvic fractures were more common in females than males (♀=57.9%, ♂= 42.1%). In this context, it was constituted 18.7% ilium fractures, 12.6% pubis fractures, 18.9% ischial fractures, 11.3% acetabulum fractures, 29.2% sacroiliac luxation and 9% symphysis pelvis fractures of pelvic fractures. As a result, it was revealed that multiple fractures could be seen in traumas taken to the pelvic area and their rates.
