Meet Toby, the newest addition to Nurse Miranda’s family. Toby is a Whippet X Kelpie puppy that Miranda rescued; and he is already very well known to all the staff at Pascoe Vale Vet!
Last Monday, Miranda was going to have Toby checked by a vet before registering him for pet insurance. That very morning, after dropping the kids off to school, Toby was so excited when Miranda came home that he collided with a timber step and broke his leg!
Toby was seen at the clinic and x-rays were taken under anaesthetic. It was identified that Toby’s type and number of fractures were minimally displaced. A splint was required to help his leg heal as well as bandage changes every 4 days. Miranda tells us that this hasn't slowed Toby down one bit except when he is asleep on the couch!
For your information, Toby is now covered by pet insurance!
