My bully broke his leg :'(


Little Dog
im not a religious person but i always thought of prayers as good thoughts and good energy, so please keep my dog in mind.

he broke his leg saturday night while playing out in the backyard at my mothers house, she said between the sound of the snap of the bones and his cry of pain, it is the most horrible sound she has ever heard. to top things of, its not a clean brake, it is a spiral fracture of both the tibia and fibula (both bones between the knee and ankle idk if i got the names right), the doctor said we could just put a cast on it, but the best thing is surgery. surgery its schedule for tomorrow morning and its going to be $2500, i dont think the doctor thought i was going to go for the surgery because of the cost, i told her i dont care how much it is as long as he is ok.

i have a friend who is a vet student and works at another animal clinic, so i had him do some research on the clinic and he told me my dog is in good hands, both of the surgens who work at the clinic are not only specialists but they are well known in the "vet comunity" in our area, as reasuring as that is im still very scared and upset.

I can't remember the last time u was sad enough to cry, even though in pain meds and sedatives he is still in so much pain, I spent all night last night by his side on an air mattress keeping an eye on him, making sure he didn't try to move. I know he is hurting and scared, he freaked out any time I would move away from him.

Well it's a spiral fracture so he probably landed hard on it in a twisting motion, like his paw landed stiff and his body kept rotating.


Good Dog
I'm not of any one religion. But prayers are good :) and I'm send some your way!!!

Poor little guy!! Sending tons of prayers and hopes for a speedy recovery your way!! It's amazing what we are willing to spend on these guys to "fix" them when they are sick.... I would be doing the same as you, and borrowing, post dating checks, whatever I had to do to get him back in top health. Sending huge :hug: your way!! Keep us updated and let us know how he's doing.


Little Dog
Dropped him off this morning at the clinic, he is such a high energy dog, that I can tell the difference on him now, it's taking a toll on him. Surgery will begin in a few hrs, he will spend the night for observation and then I can pick him up tomorrow if it all goes well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

best wishes and God bless for a safe and rapid recovery! Get well boy! I used to work for a vet, don't worry, he will be OK.


Little Dog
He is out of surgery. *He is fine, they put a plate in to strenghten the bone, he just has to take it easy for 6 weeks.*

Thanks for everyones kind words and good thoughts.


Little Dog
Ok they released him today, he is almost back to his old self, I got coppies of the xrays, I'll post those up along with some pictures of his leg in a new thread o ce o have a chance.


Glad to hear all is well. I know what it's like for you. We've had two BTs with severe broken legs over the years. One died from a blood clot on the operating table and the other missed out on being a puppy because of confinement for several weeks. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. He'll be good as new in no time.
