Four cases of atypical mandibular fractures in the dromedary camel were treated by Cerclage and standard interdental wiring technique. All the animals had an uneventful recovery except development of submandibular abscess in one animal. No slipping or loosening of the fixation wires was noted in any case and all the fractures healed at variable time intervals ranging from 2.5 to 3 months period.
