Abner's surgery

We are very grateful that ACT V Rescue & Rehabilitation agreed to take in Abner to continue his recovery. He had gained back enough weight and strength to address the orthopedic issues with his damaged rear leg.

Well, Lord knows we tried.
Abner had to have his leg amputated last night.
The surgery went well, and we are hoping his pain will be relieved with the leg gone.
He was assessed yesterday, and his X-rays revealed a fractured acetabulum and pelvis. He had a cruciate rupture and patella luxation. He had been dragging his back end around town, but hopefully very soon he'll be a frolicking, happy three-legged dog!
He'll be back with his foster mom very soon, and then the loving begins...!
