Widget

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!

Welcome to Poppy

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.
