Penny's Broken Leg
We were contacted by our trustee, Sarah, regarding a rabbit that had been surrendered to a nurse at her veterinary practice. The original owner had surrendered her as they were unwilling to pay for the treatment their rabbit needed for a dislocated carpus and broken radius. We agreed to help rehabilitate Penny so she could go on to find a forever home - she was only 5 months old.
Penny had already had some treatment for her broken leg including radiographs and a Robert Jones bandage; this is used for orthopedic support. The following xrays are of the injury before treatment:
Penny's injury had healed very well and before long, she was adopted by her foster carer and now lives as a free roam house bunny with a few friends of her own. Yay Penny!
