Rupert's Recovery

Kerry from Ponsonby

Meet my boy, Rupert. He is totally obsessed with tennis balls.

The weekend before last (Sunday 3/11/19), his addiction literally sent him over the edge. He blindly chased a ball off a bank landing a couple of metres below onto the road. To be fair, and in his defence, I recall a similar moment of stupidity myself skiing. But that's another story.

Off to Animal A&E (nearby thankfully) where first x-rays were taken. The next day a specialist confirmed surgery would be needed.

Diagnosis - severe carpal injury
Treatment plan - Right pancarpal arthrodesis

Please help if you can towards surgery and follow-up care for Rupert.

Many thanks and see you at the park!
