Milo, a 4-year-old male Shih Tzu, was surrendered to Humane Society London & Middlesex on September 4th, 2020. This sweet and happy-go-lucky fellow is thought to have lost his right eye early on in life (details unknown) and is now suffering from a serious injury to his left, front elbow.
His previous owner had taken him to a Veterinarian prior to surrendering him to HSLM. The radiograph showed a moderately displaced fracture of the lateral humeral condyle. In layman’s terms, Milo’s front leg elbow joint was completely fractured.
To determine the next course of action, the HSLM Animal Health team promptly took Milo to another Veterinarian for a second opinion about treatment. Due to Milo’s small size, young age and ability to walk without use of his fourth leg already, the Veterinarian strongly recommended that the fractured leg be amputated.
To minimize Milo’s pain and discomfort caused by the fracture, HSLM has scheduled the surgery date for Tuesday, September 8th, 2020.
