Hello and welcome to Fern. Such a cute little collie. She really is a cuddle bum and a heart melter!
Sadly she managed to have an argument with a car. The driver was devastated as Fern didn’t look where she was going and no one knew about the hole in the fence that she had found in a park.
The result was a dislocated elbow. It took time before it was relocated, but luckily for her, it was reduced without surgery, successfully.
So she came for physiotherapy to rehabilitate. We have to say, her recovery has been incredible! She has done so well by herself. But we can enhance this and give mum some confidence in her recovery. In the early stages the risk is that the joint is not yet stable and can pop out again. This has not happened so this is excellent news.
Her rehab encouraged good healing, range of movement and muscle building to support the joint. We are then slowly increasing the load in the joint and gentle stresses so that she can get back to her beloved agility. Mum is happy to do whatever keeps Fern happy, and agility does that so we are all keen to get her back where she is happiest.
Keep up the good work mum and Fern!
