Cyda – Knee Problem

Cyda

Cyda

Cyda has a problem with her knee, at the site where her internal stitches were placed from her Luxating Patella operation, just under the skin.  See http://www.heronbank.co.uk/2011/04/cyda-has-a-luxating-patella/

Vet and Hydrotherapist Rhona, at Donaldson’s Animal Rehab Centre at Birchencliffe spotted it when Cyda went for hydrotherapy on Monday.  Rhona ordered an X-Ray which confirmed that an infection had indeed developed.  Apparently, although this is not “usual”, it can happen.

A course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories should sort the problem out and she’ll soon be back on the treadmill.

The muscles are building up nicely in her leg, and she is using it a lot more, so despite this setback, she should hopefully be back to normal very soon.
