Bailey

Huge sixteen-month-old Newfoundland Bailey is mum Asmitha’s pride and joy. He has brought new-found happiness into her life, but she has discovered that Bailey is suffering from developmental elbow disease, causing osteoarthritis, lameness and constant pain.

Treatment

Anxious to resolve his pain and provide quality of life, Asmitha turns to Noel to discuss the possibility of a custom-made stepped plate that can be used to redistribute the weight on Bailey’s elbows away from the painful side, in a procedure called sliding humeral osteotomy, which Noel helped to develop and which will involve intricate surgery. But as he weighs fifty-five kilos it will be a mammoth undertaking before big-hearted Bailey can rediscover his bounce.
