The Story

Bella is a sweet and fun-loving Labrador mix puppy who is about 9-10 weeks old. She came into foster care with an old injury to her left rear leg. We are unsure how the injury happened, but we think she was probably hit by a car. When our veterinarians took xrays they found a fracture at the end of her femur near the knee joint and through the bone's growth plate. Because of the severity, location, and age of the injury, our veterinarians decided that  surgically repairing the fracture was not likely to be a helpful option for Bella. While a splint holds her leg stable, the fracture is not healing due to the old nature of the injury. In addition, because of the damage to her growth plate, the leg will not continue to grow normally. Because she continues to experience some pain, we made the decision to have her leg amputated. That will prevent her from having long term pain in that leg, and allow her to live a more comfortable and happy life. Since she is a young puppy she should be able to adjust well to life with three legs. Once she recovers from surgery she will be available for adoption.

Bella was finally able to have her amputation surgery yesterday. She had not been feeling well, so we had to postpone it while we got her stronger. She is still thin, but her appetite is picking up! She is doing fantastic after her surgery. Hopping around like a champ! She will have to wear a cone for about 10 days until her stitches come out. We will update everyone again then!
