In this article, we present two middle-aged female patients with ulna fracture or medial meniscal tear resulting from dog-related injuries, which are not common. Both patients mentioned that pain started after their dogs pulled away their collar ropes strongly and suddenly. Both patients had postmenopausal osteoporosis and degenerative osteoarthritis. For this reason, ulna fracture and meniscus tear had developed with low-energy trauma resulting from dog-related injuries.
