We’ll be following up with Wellington in a month, while he continues a controlled exercise and physiotherapy routine at home.
The prognosis for return of independent ambulation is good, though he many not regain tail function.
Our head of neurology said “Wellington sustained a very severe and complex spinal fracture. Thanks to swift action we were able to stabilise the fracture site the same day. The rapid relief of spinal cord compression has resulted in a quite remarkable turnaround. Seeing Wellington on his feet again so quickly is fantastic, and we are hopeful he’ll continue to regain increasing hindlimb function.”
