Little 6-month-old Bruno was in his parent’s arms when he started to wiggle and fell. When he stood back up, he was holding up his front paw, so his pet mom brought him into emergency at SAGE Veterinary Centers Dublin right away! Radiographs revealed a broken elbow that involved the joint – this would require surgery by a board-certified surgeon to repair to make sure he grew up with a functioning elbow. SAGE Compassion for Animals was able to award a grant for surgery on Bruno’s elbow – and he was neutered at the same time!
