Gigi’s Sore Legs


One Sunday Gigi’s owner noticed that she was walking strangely on her back legs and looked very flat footed. She was brought in to our emergency clinic to see Kieran. He found that she had ruptured both of her Achiles tendons, but luckily there were no broken bones. She was admitted to our hospital and given pain relief.

Mark was then able to operate on her legs and re-attach her tendon. In order to allow them to rest and heal he also put some pins in her legs to keep them straight.

After a week one of her legs became sore again and we found that one of the pins had moved and so it was removed. She was rested for 6 weeks after which time the other pin was removed and her tendons had healed nicely. She is now back to walking round normally again.
