A friend of mine, Andrew Knight, is a vet with a sideline in writing, and a few days ago he sent me a link to one of his latest articles, written after a visit to the Natural History Museum had started him thinking about the injuries dinosaurs could suffer and how one might treat them.

Given the likelihood of sudden twisting and turning forces exerted on the stifle joint whilst attempting to capture far smaller (and, hopefully, more agile) veterinary staff – possibly following an attempted rectal temperature check – such an injury would not seem improbable.

It’s written for a Veterinary magazine, so it’s a bit technical. But it made me laugh, so I thought I’d share it here.
