Pet of the month for January is Derri!
Derri was playing with her brother when suddenly she yelped out in pain and wouldn’t put any weight on her back left leg. Her owners brought her in to see us, we then sedated Derri and took some x-rays. The x-rays confirmed that Derri had ruptured her cruciate ligament.
We booked Derri in for surgery but unfortunately on the morning of the surgery Derri developed diarrhea and the surgery had to be postponed. Once the diarrhea had resolved Phil put on his Superhero surgery cap and successfully carried out the surgery.
It was a long road of recovery for Derri, but she is now back to playing happily with her brother.
