“Layla was presented to Sun Valley Animal Center after an osteochondritis dissecans surgery that over time led to lameness. Dr. Randy Acker performed a Total Ankle Repair surgery on October 12, 2016. One year later, Layla’s owner, Katherine Howe, reports that Layla is hiking six miles with no visible discomfort. She is running off trail, up and down the hills hunting for grouse!”
