Elsa had her surgery today, Friday, December 29, 0217, and is now resting comfortably at the Animal Referral Center Fox Valley where
she will stay for monitoring through the weekend. Dr. Ryan Demianiuk, DVM, Diplomate ACVS, was Elsa’s surgeon and said he thinks the surgery went as well as possible. Elsa’s pelvis was plated to stabilize the two fractures and an FHO (femoral head osteotomy) was performed on her left pelvic region to correct the injuries sustained from the accident.
She’ll spend the weekend in ICU under careful monitoring and be released to her foster home next week. We will keep everyone updated on her progress throughout her recovery. Thank you again for helping get Elsa the care she needed and thank you to the Animal Referral Center, Dr. Demianiuk and the medical team for the excellent care they provide.
