That break must be something that is very difficult to fix. A friend of mine had a similar situation with her dog about a year ago. Due to the extremely high cost of taking the dog to Vancouver for surgery which would cost around $5,000.00 on top of that, she and her husband decided to have the leg amputated. This was partly because the vet was even unsure about whether the more expensive fix would work; he thought amputation might be necessary even after they tried to save the leg. The dog is doing fantastic on 3 legs, and the cost was fairly modest, only $1,500.00. There are a lot of dogs around with only 3 legs, and it seems to cause them no problems at all. The dog I am telling you about was completely mobile, doing everything he could previously do, within 3 days of the amputation. Only the very first day he needed a little bit of support on one side. I really hope somebody is going to be able to save this little dog. I certainly would if I could.
