Carpal Instability

 

Beautiful Bo, an 11 year old black Labrador, was hit by a car in her youth and suffered an injury to her left carpus(wrist) and her left hind limb. As age has caught up with her, Bo has not wanted to walk much and was having trouble getting up the stairs at home, to sleep beside her loving owners at night. The left carpus was clearly unstable with laxity of ulnar deviation. A splint has helped keep Bo on her feet and still able to climb the stairs to be with her beloved owners. Being off line due to the carpal problem, as well as being quite atrophied(wasted) in the muscles of the left upper hind limb, means Bo has back pain as well. So while we were there, treatment for Bo's sore back and hip with some heat and massage was much to Bo's liking.
