I’m just sick, y’all. Ollie either fell or jumped off of my lap at about 5:00 this afternoon and broke his leg. Both of the bones in his leg broke through. He’s at the vet for tonight and most of tomorrow under sedation because he’s in a lot of pain. We should be able to go get him around 5:00 tomorrow.
The doc is going to try to splint his leg and re-x-ray it every two weeks or so to see if it is healing. He said with little dogs like Ollie, it’s not uncommon for these type of breaks in this location to not heal properly. Both broken ends just fuse shut instead of fusing back together. In that case, he can send us to a specialist who can insert a plate, blah, blah, blah.
He’s going to have to be isolated from the other dogs and kept in a small area or kennel for the next month or so while that leg is trying to heal. We’re just hoping for the best and not even thinking about “what if” just yet. Some of you might think it’s silly to ask this for a dog, but say a little prayer for Ollie tonight anyway.
Of course, I will keep you updated.
