Welcome to Ted

TedHello and welcome to Ted! A beautiful, if a little noisy, west highland white terrier. He has Legg Perths disease. This effects young dogs and causes hind limb lameness. In more severe cases they need to have the head of the femur removed (hip joint). This is what happened to Ted. So he is now having physiotherapy to rehabilitate following the surgery.

Typical of many small dogs, he is very happy on 3 legs, so he sees little need to try to use the leg that has had the surgery. So our job is to help Ted regain confidence in the limb, regain good range of movement and build strength. This is all under way and is going very well.

Keep up the good work Ted!
