Pet of the Month: 
Jessie Jenkins

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 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.

You all do such an amazing job and treat the dogs with such affection. Maisey could't weight bare on her hind leg after a cruciate repair now she is back to her old self. When we are out on walks people don't believe that she is 11!

Thanks again for all your effort and patience.
