Angel was rescued on Saturday, after her initial evaluation we feared she might need to have one of her legs amputated. It appeared this one and a half year old “poodle” had a luxated patella and hip, possibly an old injury that was never addressed.
Today Angel went for X-rays were it was discovered she has bilateral hip dysplasia... this one and a half year old dog has the hips of a 13 year old Saint Bernard... The good news is that since being rescued on Saturday she has been able to walk and run and play and is actually using her leg properly now! We have great hope that with medical management, that Angel will be able to rebuild her muscle tone!
