One-year-old Reggie was brought to Kentdale after fracturing his left leg when jumping off the sofa at home and landing awkwardly.

X-rays were carried out, which revealed a fracture to the radius and ulna of the left forelimb.

During a two-hour Orthopaedic surgery with RCVS Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Surgery, Simon Roch, the bone fragments were realigned and stabilised using a bone plate and screws applied to the radius. This will hold the bone fragments in position whilst bone healing takes place.

Six weeks after Reggie’s operation, he is now walking well and is beginning to exercise more. Let’s hope that doesn’t include any more sofa aerobics!
