Welcome to Episode 45.
This week's of the week is Physis. Physis is a "cartilage segment of a long bone that involves the growth of the bone: also called growth plate or epiphyseal cartilage." The word of the week also ties into an interesting case we had! Dr. Miller and Angel will talk about a 13-month-old Goldendoodle and his Femoral Head Osteotomy or FHO surgery.
We will talk more about the Australian Bushfires as they continue to spread. It's estimated that over 1 billion animals have lost their lives so far as the fires make their way across the country. Unexpected heroes are doing all they can to help the affected wildlife. Search and rescue dogs are being used to help find injured Koalas among the ruins. How can you help? Donating to well-known charities such as the Red Cross, The AVMA, which has already donated $25,000, or the AVMF who pledges to match any personal donations up to $50,000.
