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.

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
