🐶🐶This little princess is called Zoe🐶🐶Zoe was referred to our main London hospital Streatham Hill Vets to see our lead vet Gabriella to perform X-rays to get to the bottom of Zoe’s sore leg!
After the X-rays were performed Gabriella diagnosed Zoe with a ruptured cruciate ligament as well as a Patella Luxation!
👩🏽⚕️A cruciate ligament rupture is usually extremely painful and the knee joint becomes unstable.
👩🏽⚕️👩🏽⚕️Patella luxation is a tear of the tendon that connects the knee cap (patella) to the tibia
👩🏽⚕️🙈As you can imagine, one of these conditions alone are extremely painful, and poor Zoe had both.🙈 Luckily Gabriella was as now repost both the Cruciate and Patella in the same surgery. She now making a full recovery ❤️❤️
Youngster Comet had quite the week last week and ended up with a fracture of his front leg ☹️☹️ He then visited our main Kent hospital Briar House Vets and our amazingly skilled orthopaedic surgeon Enrico set to work on reducing the fracture and stabilising it using tiny pins! 🚨 🔨 🔧 🏥
As he is a growing boy, the type of repair needed has to allow for his bones to grow and heal at the same time so careful placement of two pins was a very skilled procedure!! 🦴 🩹
Thankfully for Team Briar…. we get to reassess Comet regularly to ensure his healing is going well! And what a treat that is…. such a beauty! 🥰 🐶🥰
