Dobie is a cute young labbie about 6 months old that his family did not want. We noticed limping when he arrived at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue, although he would surprisingly also run and play. It turns out that Dobie had a front leg with two broken bones AND a broken back leg. He had survived with two broken legs for some time.
He was underweight on arrival and quickly gained weight with his fill of great food, shelter and water, something he had not had before. We sent him to Dr. Vickie to get orthopedic help at Act V Rescue & Rehabilitation.
We are so thankful to have Act V helping our injured animals.
UPDATE FROM DR. VICKIE:
Dobie has an old fracture of his radius and ulna on the right front leg.
I've asked Dr. Rasmussen for a consult on the broken head of the femur.
He was neutered Sunday, anaplasma and lyme positive. No suprises here. Nice boy!
