This month’s Champion is Jett Lloyd. Jett is a 5 year old intact Norwegian Elkhound that was hit by a car on December 26th 2013.

He was immediately brought to VCA University Veterinary Clinic for evaluation and treatment where he was diagnosed with a broken left foreleg. Luckily, Jett did not sustain any other serious injuries.

The leg was splinted and bandaged with instructions to have the bandage changed every 1-2 weeks for 8 weeks.

Over the past 2 months, Jett has undergone several splint and bandage changes and other than some minor skin irritation, has healed nicely.

As of 2-21-14 Jett is now bandage free! He is still recovering, learning to use the leg comfortably while he continues to build strength. With good care and management, Jett is expected to regain full use of his leg.
