The National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists (NARCH)

 

NARCHOn the 24th July 2011 Maruska Aylward-Green presented at NARCH at the University of Surrey, Guildford.

This was their 3rd education seminar and annual general meeting. Maruska was one of 5 speakers who presented on the day and presented about humeral condylar fractures in spaniels. She discussed a case study that was referred to her from Davies Veterinary Specialists.

In this case, skilled surgery was required to repair a complex y-fracture of the distal humeral condyle. Post- operatively, combined physiotherapy and hydrotherapy helped to rehabilitate this young spaniel to ultimately avoid limb amputation. This was a hugely rewarding case to work on.
