Medical records for six dogs treated with tobramycin-impregnated calcium sulfate beads were reviewed for indications, duration of disease, number of beads implanted, complications, radiographic appearance of the beads, and outcomes. Beads were no longer visible on radiographs made 5 weeks after implantation. Osteomyelitis resolved in five of five dogs with follow-up. The lack of complications and the resolution of clinical signs associated with tobramycin calcium sulfate bead implantation support their clinical application in treating osteomyelitis.
