Fancy, a precious poodle that is one of our favorite patients, came in on June 23, 2015 after suddenly not being able to stand or walk due to weakness in her rear legs. Her owner, Jo Findley, was concerned she’d have to put Fancy down. Dr. Foye was immediately thinking Fancy had injured a disc in her back and took two radiographs (x-rays).
After confirming the diagnosis and identifying the area of injury, Dr. Foye discussed other options for Fancy. Mrs. Findley decided to try and help Fancy, so Dr. Foye began treatment and prepared her to go see a specialist in Shreveport since spinal cord surgery is one of the few procedures that we don’t perform here at Longview Animal Hospital.
After surgery, Dr. Foye and Hailey, his lead tech, fitted Fancy with a cart to help her get around until she re-gained strength and nerve function in her rear legs again. Everyone had to be patient, especially Fancy’s owner…
But look at her now! We’re so happy, and proud, to have been involved in getting Fancy back on her feet! She’s back to her crazy, energetic and sweet self! What a merry Christmas it’s going to be at the Findley house this year!
