    Incomplete ossification sounds like the skeletal structure hasn't developed properly? Caudal in fish refers to the tail (peduncle and fin) so perhaps it's referring to the shoulder blade structure?

    Just guesses on my part, what's it in context with?

    My dog has incomplete ossification of the humeral condyle,it means he has a crack vertically down the humerus bone,he now has a screw in each elbow,it`s only been 6 weeks since he had the second one operated on and touch would the lameness had stopped,Not sure what it would entail in the shoulder,but i`m sure it won`t be too different
