Hallo My Angel arrived on our first Greyhound Freedom Flight along with her
friends Carson and JC's Soft Melody on 9/7/08. A week after she arrived,
and one day after the major Storm in Cincinnati, Angel broke her calcaneous bone.
Unfortunately, most vet offices were without power on Monday.
Dr. Couto, a true angel to greyhounds, told us to bring her to OSU.
X-rays revealed that the current break was caused by a previous untreated
fracture - probably during the racing career. She retired from racing in
Florida at 3 and was used for breeding. Dr. Dyce repaired Angel's leg with a
10-inch plate. Angel is on the mend, but the surgery is costly.
Angel lives up to her name and has a beautiful personality. She is eager to please,
loves everyone she meets, and has had a great attitude during her ordeal.
Update 9/22/08: Angel is bearing more weight on her right leg and is doing
very well. The incision site looks very good. The surgeon is very pleased with
Update: 10/20/08: Angel is making excellent progress. She is being cared
for by a 4th year vet student who has one other greyhound. She is getting along
very well with the other greyhound and continues to live up to her name. Angel's
caretaker fell in love with her and formally adopted by. A wonderful ending and a
greyt beginning for this sweet girl!!!
