Hello and welcome to Archie. Such a sweetie. These young boys do get themselves in trouble at times and Archie is no acception.
Archie was in an accident and was hit by a car. Poor thing had his pelvis seriously broken. The vets questioned weather it was right to keep on trying to save his life.
But archie was a fighter and so were his parents. He made an astonishing recovery and was sent to us for physiotherapy to ensure as best recovery as possible.
Your pelvis hold your power limbs so its very important we get the recovery timed correctly.
We are so pleased to report that Archie is recovering so well! Sadly he has other ideas about his recovery rate and its hard to keep him calm. But its important we ensure the pelvic bones heal well before he is allowed to go crazy over the fields again.
Keep up the good work Archie, mum and dad! We'll have to back to work in no time.
Hello and welcome to Widget. Such a lovely cat. He shares a home with our Smokey.
This little bean managed to escape thier garden through a hole a fox must have dug. Mum has an amazing safe garden, but foxes are fast workers and cunning!
Widget must have somehow managed to get home. He was seriously injured and the vet said it was most likely he had been hit by a car. Well done him getting home!
He had a seriously broken pelvis and spine. He had surgery at the specialists. They warned mum of the high risk of the procedure, but there was no real alternative.
Widget made the most incredible recovery! He now moves so well you would not know he had a hip joint removed and had so much damage.
Mum asked us to do an assessment and treatment to help him stay well and mobile.
We did identify some stiffness and low level discomfort in the sacrum. So we did a treatment and set mum up with some home stretches and massage to keep him comfy.
Keep up the good work mum and widget!
Hello and welcome to Poppy.
Poor little cockerpoo. She is only 8 months old and already had a nasty accident. She is a super lucky girl! Hit at 50mph and just had her fractured pelvis! But it was a nasty fracture in 3 pieces, and took fitzpatrick referrals to fix it.
They have done a great job and she is recovering really well and walking like nothing ever happened.
But she lost alot of muscle through the earley stages and the vets also discovered she had a luxating patella also causing her problems.
So she has now come for physiotherapy to help rehabilitate all the issues. She is doing great so muscle building is the main aim. We have set her up with a home regime and hope the luxation frequency will gradually reduce.
Keep up the good work mum and Poppy.
