Grace came into Boykin Spaniel Rescue (BSR) from another rescue. Although only 3-years-old, she had been bred many times and had not been well cared for and seemed to have little or no vet care throughout her young life. She had supposedly been hit by a car and suffered injuries without receiving any vet care following the accident. As a result, Gracie had a displaced femur that was free-floating out of its socket and nerve and joint damage in her forearm and elbow. She was also heartworm positive on intake and needed to be spayed. With such a long laundry list of care needs, BSR got her into the vet to set up a care plan of treatment. First off, Gracie had an "FHO" surgery to remove the femur head and encourage the body to create a false socket for the remaining leg bone and pelvis to work more normally. After she is healed from that, we will look at getting her spayed and treat the heartworms. Throughout it all, she has been smilling and happy, somehow zipping through the yard and keeping up with her new foster pace despite extreme physical issues.
