Willow is a 2-year-old unaltered Alaskan Husky who recently went roaming the streets. While out gallivanting, she was hit by a car and broke her leg.
Willow comes from a large family who is on a tight budget. The expense of the surgery was more than they had budgeted for, so they reached out to the Foundation for help. Willow had surgery, and the vet says she should soon be back to playing with her 15-year-old Newfoundland mix sister.
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:
As a reminder: We’ve seen a lot of cases recently with dogs who have gotten out of their owners yard or house, and have been struck by a car. In June 2013, Fur Kids Foundation wrote a blog about dog proofing your back yard. Please take a minute to read this blog to see if there are things you can do to make your yard safer for your pets. Often, a pet will roam when it is unaltered. So, another great way to keep your pet safe and healthy is to spay or neuter them. We have a great page about the benefits of spaying and neutering your animal available here.
