puppy with broken leg
by sevierah george
puppy was bitten by bigger dogs and they broke her leg, my husband just took her to a vet this morning, i'm so frustrated and scared.
its 2 & a half months old will it heal quickly? what if they is internal bleeding she might die?
If your husband has taken your pup to a veterinarian then I'm sure she will get the treatment she needs. She will probably need the leg to be set, and antibiotics to prevent infection.
I'm not a vet so I can't give you a professional opinion, but hopefully it will be a fairly simple break and will heal well. Obviously she will need to be off it for a while and to take any medications she's given, but puppies are very resilient and she will hopefully make a speedy, and complete, recovery.
I can certainly understand you feeling upset and angry, I would feel the same way, but as long as you pup gets the attention she needs she should be okay. It's important to keep her away from other dogs, particularly those that aren't friendly, or play rough, until she is completely recovered.
I wish you the very best of luck and hope she's doing much better soon.
