ST. LOUIS , MO (KTVI)-The Humane Society of Missouri is continuing to treat a dog who was brutally injured last year. Trooper was dragged for more than a mile behind a pick-up truck in November 2012. HSMO vets diagnosed Trooper with a painful condition common among dogs where the knee-cap moves out of its normal position. He recently underwent knee surgery, his seventh surgery since the incident.
The surgery was successful, but Trooper will be in recovery a few weeks.
In a photo provided by the Humane Society of Missouri, Dr. Travis Arndt, interim director HSMO's Animal Medical Center of Mid-America, can be seen administering a laser therapy treatment to Trooper. The treatments are not painful.
