We often say it is a privilege to treat our patients. Never truer than in this case. This Labrador is a police sniffer dog, based in the South-West and helping to protect us all.
He lives with his police officer handler full time, so they have a bond both as a colleague and a pet.
Early onset elbow arthritis meant he was becoming limited in his movement. We performed bilateral Proximal Abducting Ulnar Osteotomy (PAUL), and here at 6 week review he is nearing a return to duty.
Fantastic job!!! Our service dogs play such and important role!! So many hours go into training them! And Devon and Cornwall have such a great in house breeding programme!! Well done to you all! Xxx
Another update, another Daisy! This time, a 5month old Chihuahua who had sustained a radius & ulna fracture
“My dog, Saffie had TPLO performed by Colin on both of her rear legs”
Superb nursing and patient care values, inspirational colleagues
