AGAIN HE IS 17 WEEKS OLD AND FELL OUT OF THE BACK OF A PICK UP
TRUCK. WE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING WHY WAS HE IN THE BACK OF A
TRUCK???????. NATURALLY HE GOT VERY VERY HURT. LET ME LINE ITEM HIS
INJURIES. 1. BROKEN RIBS- 3 TO BE EXACT. 2. BACK RIGHT BROKEN LEG IN 2 PARTS. THE FEMUR SUSTAINED A COMPOUND
BREAK. IN FACT TO QUOTE THE SURGEON HE HAD TO SEARCH for part of the
bone once the leg was opened up. He had to have a plate, and 8
screws/pins to put his leg and hip back together. The surgeon stated it
was one of the worst breaks he has worked on. Apparently he fell off
the back of the truck and bounced off the ground and then hit the
ground again. That is why his leg was do badly broken.
3. Hairline fracture on front leg. Only needed to be splinted. Will heal
on own with proper care.
Now what is so amazing is this puppy was trying to be so brave. He is a
super boy and we need donations for his surgery. This was expensive,
however we felt he was owed a chance to get better at 17 weeks. Thanks
to cutting edge advances in veterinary bone surgical procedures he will
positively make a full recovery. Please mail donations to. Mid-Atlantic
Saint Rescue. P.O. Box 93 Woodbine Md 21797. If you are interested in
