Artica is a 7 month old Siberian Husky who recently broke her leg. Unsure if she jumped off a deck, or tried to play with a BBQ grill (and the BBQ grill won), Artica came inside yelping and limping; it was clear to them that she was in pain. When her parents brought her to the vet they saw that her front leg's growth bone was shattered, and the only way to help her feel better was surgery.
Broken legs in dogs can be quite common. If you see any of the following signs or symptoms in your dog, be sure to take them to the vet right away:
Recently, her mom told us that Artica was having a hard time staying calm, as most puppies do, but her recovery is going as smoothly as it can, she is showing very few signs of pain and discomfort.
