A dog and a cat suffered talocalcaneal luxation with plantar displacement of the head of the talus. Each case was associated with luxation of the talocentral joint and subluxation of the calcaneoquartal joint. The collateral ligaments were not significantly disrupted and this made it technically difficult to reduce the luxations. However, after open reduction, the luxations were inherently stable and a positional screw provided long-term stability. Both animals returned to their previous level of activity with no detectable signs of lameness.
