Bella - 8yr old (in two weeks!) English Springer Spaniel, fractured her elbow and the implant got infected. Three surgeries to correct the pins, and decided to amputate as bone was crumbling due to infection.
Bells has arthritis, and has had two hip replacements and one femeral head removal (hip replacement removal).
She’s a loving, and loyal dog. And this has shocked both of us, hugely.
Bells also has fissures to her right, remaining elbow which is requiring surgery as soon as possible to prevent them from turning into full fractures.
Bells’ is a loving, loyal and happy little dog. My best friend, and my pupster. This has happened so very quickly and we both haven’t had much time to prepare for this change but are trying to adapt as much as possible, and teaching each other everyday.
