Bionic Des

Apologies to anyone who might find such things a bit stomach-churning but here are Desmond's x-rays. The break can clearly be seen beforehand and there is no missing the plate and screws after the repair! He had a dressing change today and the wound was looking very good, it certainly seems to be healing well on the outside anyway. The stitches come out in a week but the support dressing will probably have to stay on for the next four weeks.

It's going to be a long month!

Nasty - poor Des. Glad all is going well with the recovery though. Lx

That looks like a nice neat engineering job, Sue. Fingers are still crossed that all goes smoothly now.

Bionic Des or Metal Mickey. The "before" photo really shows how similar the fore leg is to a tiny human arm and hand.
Fingers crossed for a complete recovery.

Wow that indeed was a bad break what a brave pup! I agree though it is going to be hard to keep him quiet and still for the healing time. Poor Mum!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Blessed New Year!

I'm so happy to hear "The Six Million Dollar Des" is looking like he'll recover nicely. Scary, but sounds like he's in good hands.
