Dr. Adams from KAH talked to Dr. Philibert (Ortho Specialist) today re: her complete x-rays and he concurs with what all of us also feel.

“This is a serious bad malunion from an old fracture. There is nothing that can be done surgically that has any good prognosis for this dog. Arthrodesis is the only remote possibility, yet, we would not get a good functional joint as this is the elbow area. There would also be further surgeries required in her future including plate removal etc. If left alone, while she is managing ‘ok’ at this time, she is in obvious pain, it shall continue to become more chronic and, her ability to manage at all will greatly diminish to an extreme poor status plus, further damage will be seen on not just this leg yet, the rest of her body in attempting to compensate. Dogs can be so stoic when in agony. Most expedient thing is to amputate.”

We now await to see what the next available surgery spot for BHRR’s Noelle Angel shall be with Dr. Philibert. We have to now come up with another $4,000. $2,000 before her actual surgery date will be necessary. We anticipate that she will be scheduled over the next 10 days.
