Vet Diary - Sundance's Story

On Saturday 30th August 2014 our vet got a call from the neighbourhood wardens regarding a little dog with a poorly leg. He was in a front garden in obvious pain. Vet Sue and manager John went out in the centre's ambulance to collect the injured stray and brought him back to the centre. Further investigation revealed the dog had sustained a broken elbow. Our vet supported the leg with a cast to protect the elbow from further damage and supplied ongoing pain medication to help him cope until the problem could be dealt with. No owner came forward to claim him so seven days later ownership transferred from the council to the charity.

 

Paul Wilson from Wilson Veterinary Group came to our animal welfare centre and performed the operation to remove the dog's leg. Named "Sundance" by staff who had grown to love the young dog. The operation was performed in just over an hour and within two hours Sundance was awake, it took a few more hours before he began to test out standing but he's making good progress. We'll keep him for another 2 weeks before removing the stitches and placing him up for adoption, by which time he should have adjusted well to life on three legs.
