The beginning of her road to recovery
Sonia had the cast on her leg for several weeks, and during this time our dedicated team of dog carers were on hand to give her plenty of cuddles and attention to cheer her up.
As she wasn’t able to go for long walks, the team found other ways of keeping her mentally stimulated with enrichment feeding using Kong toys as well as clicker training to keep her engaged. This provided a welcome distraction for Sonia while her leg was healing.
After a number of check-ups with our vets and further X-rays, the team were satisfied with her recovery and decided she was ready to have her cast removed. Although Sonia’s leg was much better, she was left with a sore on her elbow from where she had been scratching at her cast. The wound had become infected, so she was treated with antibiotics which seemed to do the trick.
