Rebecca and Chris are devastated when their four-year-old Pug and Beagle cross, Barney, is hit by a bus and dragged along the tarmac underneath it, crushing an ankle and causing extensive damage to his leg. Noel fears the puggle’s wound poses a serious infection risk, and he has lost 40 percent of the bone in the damaged leg, so the Supervet creates an innovative two-tier treatment, involving an external ankle frame for support. There is then a long and anxious wait before Noel can attempt surgery. And in a world first, he invents a custom implant that holds the ankle together by fitting inside the bone.
