Miracle dog Tucker still going from strength to strength...

12 August 2015

Tucker, an Old English Sheepdog, had been referred to Willows as a puppy in 2014 with a very severe condition affecting the nerves in his hindlimbs called polyradiculoneuritis.

After treatment from Sebastian Behr, one of Willows’ neurology Specialists, the nerves recovered but he was left with severe deformities of his back legs. Orthopaedic Specialist Toby Gemmill then carried out operations to correct the deformities and fuse his hock joints.

Tucker recovered well and was seen recently for his one year check-up. He has had a great year following the operations, and is now able to run and play for several hours every day with no problems from his back legs.
