Kayleigh Gulliford

A massive thank you to the amazing staff at the Smart Clinic. You have helped Febee become the fit, young dog she deserves to be. After becoming intermittently lame after the agility season last year I really didn't know what to do. The treatments and exercise plan you provided us has worked wonders. She's the fittest ever and proved it by winning grade 1agility (twice within a month!). I love seeing her enjoying life again, thank you!!!

Rizzle Finch

Pets Age: 
21 month old
Pet Type: 
Male neutered, Boxer cross

Rizzle first presented to the Smart Clinic in March this year. Right fore lameness had been noted in early January and signs had waxed and waned with only temporary response to periods of rest. Radiographic and CT findings were consistent with bilateral elbow dysplasia with a fragmented coronoid process on the right. The CT imaging also showed signs of right biceps tendon pathology. He had seen an orthopaedic specialist who felt that arthroscopic assessment may be required with a view to surgery. The decision was made to try rehabilitation before proceeding with this.

Layla Karas

Pets Age: 
4 year old

Layla is a good example of a forelimb lameness case that can be frustrating in general practice. She first presented in June 2013. Her main presenting complaint was that she had been intermittently stiff on the right fore, usually after a period of rest following a vigorous walk. These signs were temporarily responsive to rest but resumed once more challenging exercise was brought in.
