8-month-old Milton was brought into the Emergency Veterinary Service (EVS) at the Rowe Veterinary Group after he had had a nasty accident. After being with his new owners less than 48 hours, he had made a dash for it and escaped from his new home. When he returned, his owners found him unable to use his back leg and very unhappy.
It was found by the EVS service that Milton had broken his tibia (shin bone) on his right hind leg, which needed orthopaedic surgery to put it back together, therefore Milton was referred onto Ossicle Limited for this.
Milton underwent surgery to stabilise his fractured tibia using a KYON Veterinary Surgical Products ALPS 6.5 plate technique and, after being discharged for his recuperation period, he came back 6 weeks later for a check-up with Mark and to re-radiograph his leg to check it was healing okay.
Thankfully all has gone well since his accident, his bone has healed well and he has settled into his new home nicely. We're sure once the weather has picked up he will be out adventuring again...just a little more carefully this time, Milton!
