Gracie has a diaphyseal fracture of the humerus

Gracie is a 5 year old Sheltie who was referred with a comminuted oblique mid to distal third diaphyseal fracture of the left humerus.

It was stabilised with a lateral 2.7mm locking plate (vet instrumentation) giving a very rigid stability.

This morning she is up and toddling home on the leg.

TPLO on both backlegs

“My dog, Saffie had TPLO performed by Colin on both of her rear legs”

Amazing! They have saved our Great Dane “Tallula” 3 times from different illnesses and she is only 5!

And they are also patient with the upset owners too!

Thank you
