???metadata.dc.description.resumo???: A 16-kg young adult male maned wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) was found on the shoulder of the highway where it was unable to stand or move. It was rescued by the Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources and presented for urgent care. The animal was conscious and alert, with good body condition. For physical examination, chemical restraint was performed with a combination of ketamine (Ketamina Agener 10%®, Agener União Health Animal, Av. do Café, 277, São Paulo-SP, Brazil; 10 mg/kg i.m.) and midazolam (Dormonid®, Roche, Av. Engenheiro Billings, 1729, São Paulo-SP, Brazil; 0.3 mg/kg i.m.); it was noted to have several cutaneous wounds, mainly in the carpal and tarsal areas, which suggests abrasions from asphalt. The right stifle joint, right femur, and left olecranon had instability and crepitation. Radiographs (Figs. 1, 2) were taken of the right femur and stifle. Review the films and provide your radiographic diagnosis.
