Pebbles is doing very well. She is still on crate rest for about a week. She has gotten so much better at holdy and enjoys the breaks from the crate. The swelling is still there, but better, and she does still slightly limp from time to time. This sweet girl can’t wait to be sprung loose so she can get all her energy out and run free. Some wonderful family will be so lucky to adopt her.
Just a few days later it looks pretty obvious that the pin that was loose in her elbow was the cause of her pain. Karla and Neal said Pebbles is no longer limping and no longer in pain. Next stop a spay and then off to a new home..
What we have discovered with Pebbles’ elbow is that there are 5 pins in there and one screw. One of the pins is free floating and not attached to anything, the others are in various places around the elbow and some are very attached to the bone while others are not. We decided the best solution to start was to take her to surgery and remove the pin that is free floating and hope that is the one that is causing the pain for her. We did that on Monday and it has now been removed. She will recover with pain meds and we will then wait and see if she gets better. If she continues to have pain for a week or more after this we will have to reassess what we do next. Hopefully this is the source of her discomfort and it will be all said and done.
