Unlucky farm dog -Fractured tibia
This hard working farm dog had an argument with a tractor !! He broke his tibia. This was a high energy fracture and could be best fixed with a plate and screws.
Under anaesthetic we opened up the leg and aligned up the bones. We applied a plate and 3.5mm cortical screws.
He had to be kept well rested and out of trouble for 8 weeks but is now back working and helping to get the cattle in again much to the farmers great relief.
He is no longer friends with the tractor!!!!
