Broken


The Animal Doctor had to amputate this dog's left forelimb after a traumatic fall caused his bones to break in several fragments ( a comminuted fracture). Tiny dogs are fragile and we do not recommend them as companions or playmates to very young children who may accidentally pull their leg or drop them to the ground.

This dog is lucky to have a family who loves him and is willing to spend for his treatment. If amputation was not performed, gangrene would develop and result to life threatening infection.


High five, anyone?
