Brave Pet of the Month: March 2017
Loola is a five and a half year old Border Collie who came to the Windaroo Veterinary Surgery Animal Hospital to see Dr Lisa Roberts, as one afternoon after she had accidently been run over by a four-wheel-drive. When she came in, Loola was walking quite timidly, with her tail down between her legs. Fortunately she did not appear to be in shock, and didn’t seem to have any injuries to her chest or abdomen, but Dr. Lisa thought she may have a fractured tail or ‘tail pull’ injury, which is usually far more common in cats.
The first night Loola was given pain relief to keep her comfortable, and she was instructed to have bed rest with the plan of having x-rays the following day.
