T-Bone came to Picayune Veterinary Clinic with a fractured femoral neck. It was determined that the injury occurred when T-bone was struck by a car and then denied treatment for his injury by his previous owner. It must have been terrifying for T-Bone.
At this point, the most effective treatment option is a surgical procedure called a Femoral Head Osteotomy. This procedure will remove the femoral head and neck and allow the development of a false joint. This process will finally allow complete weight bearing and range of motion to return to T-bone. The recovery time is approximately six weeks. Range of motion water therapy and laser therapy will shorten the recovery time. We aim to pursue all options to help T-Bone get the best treatment available. We can't imagine the pain this puppy has endured before coming into our care, but with your help we promise he will know happiness and love.
Update: T-Bone had his surgery. We went ahead and pursued surgery before raising the funds. He is now in a foster home. However, the journey to full recovery continues. Please consider supporting his surgery and continued recovery with a wishlist purchase or donation. All items will stay with him through adoption and will keep him comfortable and cozy as he recovers and awaits his forever home
