History

An immature northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) used for falconry was evaluated following suspected trauma that occurred during a hunting expedition 3 days earlier. On physical examination, the bird would not bear weight on its right leg, and the leg appeared to be dangling loosely. The talons on the right foot were unable to grasp, and there were no signs of deep pain sensation during physical examination. There was extensive bruising over the right hip joint. No other signs of neurologic deficits were detected. General anesthesia was induced with 4% inhalant isoflurane in oxygen and maintained at 2%
