T-Bone came to Picayune Veterinary Clinic with a fractured femur. Vets and rescuers discovered that T-Bone was struck by a car and then denied treatment for his injury by his previous owner. It must have been terrifying for T-Bone.
The most effective treatment option was a surgical procedure called a Femoral Head Osteotomy. During this procedure, the vets remove the femoral head and neck to allow the development of a false joint. This would allow complete weight bearing and range of motion to return to T-Bone. The recovery time was approximately six weeks. T-Bone was also recommended to have water therapy and laser therapy to shorten the recovery time.
At this point, Pearl River County SPCA started a campaign on CUDDLY for T-Bone. Animal lovers from everywhere recognized the incredible amount of pain this puppy had endured and were moved to help. Over a few weeks, T-Bone was able to surpass his goal and was sent wonderful wishlist items.
T-Bone has come a long way since then. We are happy to say that he now has come to know happiness and love with his new mom and his adopted sister Maizy. Yayyyy! Happy Tails!
