Pet Of The Month December 2013

This lovely girly is Apple-Pie, a 4yr old Pointer.
Apple-Pie had a bad road traffic accident in August and was immediately referred to the Royal Veterinary College for surgery to fix her badly broken left hind leg. Apple-Pie had to have her bones pinned and an external fixator applied to keep the pins in place, to enable her bones to heal. (follow this link for more info on external fixation http://www.vetsurgerycentral.com/esf.htm)
In september the metal work was removed and a plaster cast was applied to Apple-Pie’s leg which had to be changed on a regular basis.
Apple-Pie has had to put up with multiple surgeries, dressing changes for her wounds and medications for infection since the RTA. Throughout all of this she has been a wonderful patient and has been very well behaved during her visits to the surgery. Thankfully the dressings are now off and she is recovering well.
