Summary

This week at Fitzpatrick Referrals one of Professor Noel Fitzpatrick’s Senior Neurologists, Jeremy, is faced with an extremely challenging case, Arlo a 7-month-old Chihuahua was born with hydrocephalus, a neurological disorder where excessive fluid accumulates on the brain resulting in a bulging head. If left untreated Arlo will not survive the condition.

Drummer, an 11-year-old golden Labrador comes to see Noel with severe elbow arthritis and back pain. He is more than just a pet to Susie. Her husband Mike had a brain tumour 12 years ago and lost his short-term memory so Drummer acts as an unofficial assistance dog.

Graham travels all the way from northern France to bring Sootyan 8-year-old black Labrador cross with elbow dysplasia to see Noel. His French vet suggested amputation, but Graham hopes Noel will be able to save Sooty’s leg.
