so i just got a new puppy and have had her for about 2 weeks now...Her name is Bella...anyways she got hurt today we have no idea how but anyways she has a leg fracture and im having a very hard time getting her to go to the bathroom because its hard for her to stand up. Please if anyone can help me it would be great
Is it a front leg or Rear?? Fractures are Very painful and the girl is right about the sling. The best way to do this is to use a bathroom towel roll it up if it is a front leg place the towel behind the elbows to support her chest then you can grip the towel ends with one hand and help her along, if it is a rear leg then you would use the towel in the same way in front of the rears. I was a vet tech for many many years we had an abandoned pup at a clininc I work at one time broke his pelvis and rear leg the vets said he would never walk again the owners di not want him so I took him home and SLINGED him everyday for over a month when he was all healed he RAN not walked but RAN and had an ever so slight limp, the vets were shocked! This sling method should work for you sometimes vets forget that we do not have the experience they have and forget to tell us good ways of doing things, believe me you will only need to sling for a few days dogs are amazing and recover quickly and will be running around with its cast on!
