Fred to have the medial patella ligament severed

After over 2 months, Fred's sticky stifle is worse than ever. It used to stick in the mornings, but would get better after working, but now it sticks all the time. The other one is also causing her trouble as well.

I have decided to get the ligaments severed completely as she can't go on like this. She can't even be transported to the Vet as the leg locks both forward and back positions and she couldn't unlock it fast enough to balance in a trailer. The Vet is having to come here to do it at home.

It is Fred's last chance, so keep fingers crossed. The op is next Wednesday, 15th May.
