Not mine.

12yr kelpie. His name is Oli. Been in a cast 14 wks. Recast once. Vet said he could manipulate the bone before a new cast is on..

Why? If its set correctly initially theres no need. Hes an old boy it will take longer to heal. He was hit by a car. He broke his right tib&  fib. Vet says bone graft, or amputation.  Or just lets see. I'm suspicious.  I think another opion is waranted.

He is 12. Id be reluctant to put him under but.... older dog... sure healing time is linger, but something here dosent add up...

I would definately get a second opinion, why would you want to manipulate in between casts?

Poor boy getting injured at such an old age, GA is a worry for any op never mind in an old dog. Hope he is feeling better soon

Thank girls. Im stressed out for him.  I'll tell tim your thoughts. He's understandidly frantic over oli. He is a gorgeous full black .

I can see no reason to manipulate between cast.

I think he needs another opinion & an xray to get a full pic. I suspect the vet is a fool. Sorry to all vets ive insulted, but... they are our babies. Just as our children.
