** Meet January's Winner**
Lola was playing on the beach when suddenly she went lame on her left hind leg. Lola's owner brought her to our practice in Llanrumney the following day where she was examined by orthopaedic surgeon Tom.
By feeling her knee Tom was able to quickly diagnose a ruptured cruciate ligament in the consulting room. At Llanrumney Vets4Pets Cardiff, we are able to offer the most up to date orthopaedic procedures. Tom performed a TTA rapid on Lola.
This procedure alters the biomechanics of the knee joint to stabilise it and relieve the pain Lola was suffering as quickly as possible. As you can see in the x-ray it involves cutting the shin bone and inserting a titanium cage and screws. In time these actually heal into the bone - a bionic dog!
Lola made an excellent recovery and thanks to the dedication of her owner, she will be back running around the the beach soon!
Well done Lola, a well deserved Star Pet x
