A bit more rehab and then she is free to get back to normal exercise. Go, Wookie, Go! 🐾💕Thanks for the donuts 🍩 = happy nurses 😋 ... See MoreSee Less

Audrey came to see us with two problems affecting her hind legs. Not only did she have cruciate ligament rupture but also patellar luxation, where her kneecap was sliding in and out of the groove that it should track up and down within. We see patellar luxation in both dogs and cats, the frequency and direction the patella incorrectly moves differs in each patient. It is uncomfortable when this occurs and also damages the cartilage that protect the patella and groove as they rub against each other.Audrey was affected in such a way that our normal surgical correction was not chosen for her treatment and instead we performed a Patellar Groove Replacement. We removed the misformed and damaged groove and attached a smooth artificial groove in its place, which now allows her kneecap to move correctly and pain free. Poor Audrey also had TPLO cruciate surgery at the same time, so she has a lot of metal implants in her knee now! Audrey needed a lot of rest and received dedicated care at home to get her feeling tip-top after her big surgery. We were pleased to see her again for her check up and report that she is doing brilliantly 🌟🐾Sorry about the hair cut Audrey, but your looking beautiful again now! 💕 ... See MoreSee Less

Rolo got himself into a pickle after running after a fox and encountering a car. 🤕 A fracture to his forelimb needed a visit to see us to realign the broken bones. A metal plate was placed on the radius and the narrower ulnar bone was able to be left to heal by itself as support was provided by the repaired bone. Rolo was on strick rest following his surgery to give the bones a chance to heal without complications. Rolo's mum and dad did a great job as he can be a bouncy boy and it's lovely to see him fixed and so happy! 🐾 Well done Rolo 💕 ... See MoreSee Less
