It runs in the family

Filed under Uncategorized

In September our black lab broke her ankle bone and while the bone healed fine, she never used her leg again. Today we took her to the University of Illinois vet school to have her checked out. They did a doggie MRI. Turns out that when she broke her ankle she also ruptured her achilles tendon. Since it has been so long, there is no fix other than fusing her ankle into a fixed position with a steel plate. Guess tendon trouble runs in the family!
