Little Chihuahua Louis and his favorite lion came to see us for surgery to correct a ruptured cruciate ligament and luxating patellar in the same leg. Both problems were treated in one surgery and Louis preferred cuddles during his recovery, which we all enjoyed 😍 Looking forward to seeing you again soon, you lovely little bear🐾 ...

Handsome young chap Ziggy took a tumble from the stairs and broke the humerus bone in his front leg. A large spiral fracture and crack in the bone went down nearly the whole length, meaning he needed two metal plates and a pin to support the bone whilst it heals. He was a very brave boy as it was big day in surgery for him. Life is slow and relaxed for him at the moment whilst he rests in his crate, but once he's healed he can catch up on fun with his pals. See you for your follow up xrays soon ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Cute puppy Lottie had a fall and fractured her tibia and fibular bones in her hind leg. Repair with metal pins and wire has stabilised the tibia bone allowing it to heal. Lottie is now resting whilst she recovers which shouldn't take too long for this youngster, and then having fun can start again 🐾 ... See MoreSee Less

Sam the French Bulldog and his fantastic ears came to visit us following an accident with a car. One of his injuries was a dislocated hip joint, where the ball of the femur and socket in the pelvis were no longer sitting snuggly together. This made it very hard for Sam to walk. Sometimes the hip can be manovered back in place, but often due to the injury this is not possible or once back in the right place it doesn't stay there and dislocates again. Sam's hip joint needed to be secured in place with a temporary metal pin for four weeks. This gave the tissues time to heal around the hip to help keep it in place.The metal pin has now been removed and after some further rest and gentle exercise Sam will be able to use his leg as normal and be back to having fun🐾 ...

Oliver was playing with his pals when a speedy collision with a tree stump resulted in a rather horrid fracture to his elbow. Breaking the bone on both the outside and inside of the elbow joint is what we call a Y fracture. This was quite a jigsaw to put back together but after a long surgery Oliver now has two metal plates and a big screw holding his elbow together. He is now having rest, and important physiotherapy whilst he heals. ❤️🐾 ... See MoreSee Less
