Chronic osteoarthritis of the metacarpophalangeal joint is predominantly observed in working dogs. Surgical intervention is often required to maintain a functional limb. Excision arthroplasty represents a simple, relatively quick and cosmetically esthetic alternative to arthrodesis, endoprosthesis or amputation. In the present study, the technique of excision arthroplasty is described and discussed as a treatment method for chronic osteoarthritis of the metacarpophalangeal joint.
