Indigo during her stay at HSR
Indigo is a 2-year-old Spaniel Cross who presented to Hamilton Specialist Referrals as an emergency in December 2020. She had been involved in a road traffic accident and had extensive injuries; the incident had included a direct impact to her head.
She was examined by our neurology specialist, who admitted Indigo and a CT scan revealed numerous injuries including severe pneumothorax, multiple skull fractures, right scapular fracture, pulmonary contusion, and suspected diffuse cerebral oedema suspected. Further imaging via MRI showed brainstem/midbrain haemorrhage.
