Infraspinatus Tendon Contracture

Postby greg moyer » Fri Dec 12, 2014 5:11 pm

My GWP went lame in her front shoulder. Was wondering if anyone has gone through the surgery and how was the results.

Dang Greg. Wish I could offer something of value but never had to deal with it. Good luck in getting her healthy.

BTW.... Saw your ugly face on TV last night.

That's an oddball issue, but one with an excellent prognosis. It's rare and not one I have treated but all accounts predict sucess once the fibrous tissue is released. Good luck.

Thanks
Oddball for sure. Its really nice to have a vet that has seen this before. Ray Calkins has only seen two other cases in his long carer.
It took awhile but finally found a surgeon that has experience with this injury. She going into surgery next week. Yes the prognosis is great!!
Just sucks to miss chukar hunting this year.

"Keep her mellow for a couple of weeks." Good luck with that one.

Glad it turned out well. Tough to keep a good dog down.
