Patient of the Day: Hoss, St. Bernard

Hoss is a 10.5 year old St. Bernard mix who presented on an emergent basis yesterday for neck pain and right front leg lameness. He was referred to Dr. Lane for a definitive diagnosis. Hoss underwent an MRI study of his neck and shoulder this morning. The source of pain was determined to be his shoulder. Within hours of receiving a steroid injection into his shoulder joint, Hoss was already putting more weight on his shoulder and is much more comfortable. He’s spending the night for pain management, just to ensure he’s comfortable before going home tomorrow.
Seriously, could that face be any cuter?
