Kaia the 5 month old Belgian Malinois was suddenly limping !
@drboazman found Kaia to be painful in her left shoulder !
X-rays were immediately interpreted via telemedicine thanks to @idexx & allowed for a difficult but timely diagnosis of osteochondritisdissecans (OCD)
Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is an inflammatory condition that occurs when the diseased cartilage separates from the underlying bone
@dboazman reveals how we confirmed this diagnosis with arthroscopy & how we treated Kaia’s OCD in both her shoulders !
Kaia’s systematic treatments for OCD are revealed in the next series of videos include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) plateletrichplasma Hyaluronic Acid Injection hylauronicacid Nocita Pain Relief Injection nocita Curettage & OCD Flap Excision, & Class 4 Laser Therapy class4laser
The prognosis for OCD of the shoulder in dogs is usually excellent. Dogs often return to normal function after surgery, unless the lesion has been long standing & significant degenerative arthritis has set in. veterinarylife, vetsofinstagram, aahaaccredited, fearfreepets, fearfreevetvisit vetsnobiety vetmedstudent vetsurgery, petparents, bocaratonflorida, bocaratonfl, bocavet, bocaratonrealestate
