Hello and welcome to Skye. Such a sweet hungarian Visla. She is super nervous too. Luckily we could put her at ease enough for our treatment programe. This one was pretty intence.

She managed to rupture her cruciate ligament. Very sad at 10 years old. But she is so fit and healthy so she had that on her side. We all explained the difficulty of having a dog over 15 kg doing conservetive management, but due to her age, her mum and dad wanted to try this.

We were so proud to say, that she was doing incredible well. By week 6 she was looking almost sound and was rebuilding her excercise appropriatly. She was on an ultrasound regime.

However as she got better, she got excited and happy and had a moment that set her back.

We had a frank conversation and she went back to the vets. The vet was super impressed because actually, she had found the cruciate ligamnet was now doing really well. So we had delt with the issue she had been referred for. But there was now a new issue. The vet felt there was some unusual bone growth and so she was referred for further investigation.

We also await the results. But well done mum, dad and Skye. You all did a great job and we hope this bone growth is not too serious.

Hello and welcome to Bruno. A very excited and happy labrador!

He showed some issues which concerened his parents so they investigated his hind. It turned out he did have mild hip dysplasia. He also seemed to show some mild back pain.

He has been sent for physio so he can be managde conservativly and without medication or surgery for as long as possible.

We have set him on a home regime to get his strength up, though weightloss is the biggest factor in his plan.

His mum and dad are well on board with what to do and they are moving forward, amd keeping a diary so we really can monitor the progress.

Keep up the good work mum, dad and bruno.
