Patient of the Week – Winter

This week’s patient of the week is named Winter. This beautiful dog is here to use her good looks to deliver a message about marrow bones!

Winter was having a lovely time while chewing on one, until it became trapped over her lower jaw bone. She was less than impressed that her delicious treat ended with a visit to Mountainside.

Winter was sedated and the bone was removed using a Gigli saw (a flexible wire saw used to cut bone).

Luckily, there was no damage to her teeth or jaw, and although thankful that the bone is no longer part of her, she hopes not to visit us in the future.
