Oreo is an 8-year-old Boston Terrier that is very active and despite her small size, she features the longest tongue of any Boston Terrier that I have ever met!!
Oreo’s 'paw'rents contacted us as she had been lame in her left front leg for some time. She had some swelling at her wrist (carpus) which indicated where the problem was, and we were able to use our Digitherm camera to precisely identify active inflammation in the joint. This prompted us to send her for an Xray with a specialist and Oreo was diagnosed with tendon inflammation and mild osteoarthritis.
We commenced our treatment of her joint and it was fantastic to note Oreo's steady improvements, and even better to be able to visually see the reduction in inflammation with the Digitherm camera as shown in the images below.
