Clinical Case: Patient Rocco

August 27, 2019

Rocco is a handsome young man with loads of energy, particularly when he is around his mates. Unfortunately sometimes this exuberance with his friends can be quite excessive and can get him into some trouble.
One sunny afternoon Rocco was playing with his mates when his head came in contact at full speed with someone else. The outcome wasn’t pretty even though he wasn’t at all worried! However a trip to the vet was definitely required.
A general anaesthetic and some clever stitching by Dr Sue had the lower eye lid looking as good as new.
Now we just have to convince Rocco to leave his Cone of Shame on long enough for the wound to heal. Rocco just wants to get back out to play again. Hopefully next time with not so much force!
