***** BRAVERY AWARD *****

This time our bravery award goes to Rosie!!

Rosie is a 1-year old cross breed who came into the practice one evening after she had been out for a walk. Her owners had noticed she had become very lame and was being noisy and then suddenly became quiet.

When Rosie was examined at the practice Meghan, one of our vets, found she had a stick stuck in the inside of one of her back legs! That would explain why she was very noisy and upset!

Rosie was admitted for surgery under anaesthetic that night. The stick was 10cm long and almost the whole length of it was embedded in her leg.

The stick was positioned in a very dangerous place as it sat right next to a major artery so removing it was a very delicate procedure. If the stick had hit this artery then Rosie was at risk of losing a lot of blood.

Rosie was extremely lucky – it hadn’t hit this major artery!

The stick was removed and her wound stitched back together with the placement of a drain to stop the build-up of fluid.

Rosie has been very brave throughout her ordeal, it was a very painful and very dangerous position for her to be in.

Rosie is now recovering well!
