Betty and Wilma, at 8 weeks were dumped at the shelter. Betty has 2 broken legs and broken ribs and Wilma has 1 broken legs and ribs. We rushed them from the shelter to us for emergency surgery. 

Right now, they just got well needed baths, dewormed, deflead, and de-ticked but have exploding diarrhea.

They are seeing first vet tomorrow am for first shots, more xrays, and to get surgery scheduled.


Updates

  • The surgeon advised that the X-rays revealed the bones in the five different legs and ribs had already started healing when we got the pups. At this stage of mending it could be dangerous to rebreak any of the bones involved because of growth plates and other reasons so the surgeon said best to wait and monitor healings. There may be future surgeries required but the monitoring will tell us. We will continue to collect donations so we can help financially if either or both puppy requires surgeries.
