When dogs get into accidents and break their leg, there are cases when they need an amputation. However, a skilled veterinarian can find a different way to repair a broken leg without cutting it off. That’s why a dog owner named Jeana went to Planned Pethood Plus vet clinic. She wanted a competent vet like Dr. Jeff Young to save her puppy’s leg.
Reya is a labrador pup who got hit by a car and broke several bones in her body. Her owner, Jeana, traveled from Iowa to Colorado to look for another veterinarian because the vet in her area insisted on amputation. She believes the vets at Planned Pethood can treat her dog without the need for amputation.
One of the veterinarians at the clinic named Dr. Jeff Baier talked to Jeana. He said that he is willing to repair the broken leg without amputating it. However, before that, he had to consult with the head veterinarian, Dr. Jeff Young.
When Dr. Young arrived at the clinic, he immediately took a look at Reya’s X-ray result. The way that the bones broke was really bad. Still, the vets had a solid plan that will guarantee Reya’s recovery.
Dr. Jeff Young performed surgery on Reya’s leg. It was a long process, and he had trouble taking out the broken femur head. If that piece of bone couldn’t be removed, he might have to resort to amputation. Fortunately, after trying several times, the femur head got removed.
After removing the pieces of broken bones, Dr. Young inserted a metal pin into Reya’s leg. It will act as support and provide stability while the leg heals. The surgery was a success, and the vet said that Reya would likely fully recover after two weeks.
Jeana came back to the clinic after a day. She saw Reya and was relieved to see her legs are still intact. Dr. Young explained what he did and told her that Reya would recover quickly.
