Tony Young's rescue puppy, Drago, was 8 months old before he was properly diagnosed. It was Dr. O’Sullivan who recognized that Drago who was suffering from something far more serious than panos (which he had previously been diagnosed with). He was instead facing FCP.  However, once properly diagnosed, the prognosis was good for a full recovery as he was still so young and had plenty of growing yet to do. 

Drago had surgery on both elbows to pull out the bone shards, scrape down the bones at the joints and drill holes in his long bones to aid blood flow in the growth process.  It was a long road of keeping an exuberant puppy still and quiet, during the months when he should have been running and playing and going through rigorous obedience training.  Fortunately, between Dr. O’s holistic methods (acupuncture, massage, cold laser therapy, and herbs) and the wonderful techs at the LVVSC rehab center, he came through it beautifully and in a few months we started seeing a beautiful, healthy, active young Drago.
