Before attending to the obvious wounds, synoviocentesis, ultrasound or radiography may be required to check that there is no involvement of deeper structures. General surgical principles apply to treating these wounds but consideration has to be given to the fact that these are dirty and contaminated. Skin viability needs to be assessed and after cleaning and debridement, decisions are made on what should or should not be sutured and the provision for drainage. Some of these wounds such as over-reach injuries do require general anaesthesia. These injuries are almost always more severe than what first meets the eye.
Bourton Vale hosted a client evening at the Adlestrop Village Hall on Wednesday 1st Novewmber. The evening was kindly sponsored by Boehringer Ingleheim and was a huge success; allowing attendees to meet the new members of our team and have an introduction to a variety of topics.
