Curly Kale came to Woodgreen after being found abandoned. He had badly bowed forelegs, and found it difficult to bear weight on them. Having never seen such a severe case, our vets decided to send out his x-rays to a specialist.
He was fostered by a member of staff so that we could make him feel at home, and see him every day for check-ups while we waited for news.
Ready with the care Curly Kale needed
Then the answers came back, confirming what we’d hoped for. This wasn’t a skeletal (bone) problem at all and with a nutritious diet and exercise to strengthen and develop his leg muscles, there would be no need for surgery.
With the right diet, check-ups, and all the workouts he needed through supervised play dates with other dogs in our care, Curly Kale walked confidently into his new forever home 45 days after first arriving at our centre. He’s now called Flynt!
