Case Study: Sammy


Sammy is a 5 year old Lab with chronic elbow dysplasia.

After, what we can only assume, is a fall, Sammy was unable to walk, both his forelimbs became hugely inflamed and significant bruising developed down his front legs.

Alongside veterinary treatment, Sammy underwent a course of physiotherapy and ultrasound and he is now much more mobile and able to get out on walks and even have a run about.
