This past Wednesday my 78 lb. Black Lab mix was run over in our driveway by the mail carrier. (Some of you may have seen my posts in the other forum). The front left leg and back right leg will not stay in socket. The vet hasn't even tried to splint the back leg and only kept a splint on the front leg for two and a half days. Now he wants to do surgery on the front leg, but only gives Tom a 50/50 chance of it staying in socket. After doing some research online I don't think the splint was on long enough for the leg to heal. I have decided to call the vet in the morning and tell him not to do the surgery. Instead, put both legs in splints and let the dog come home to heal for three weeks. At that time, if the legs still won't stay in socket, I will consider surgery. Am I thinking right? He has no other injuries from the accident other than minor cuts and scraps. He's eating well, but is in quite a bit of pain. He's only two years old and healthy as a horse. I plan to find, or rig up, a "wheelchair" so he can be mobile to a certain extent...I want to avoid sores and stiffness due to lack of exercise. I am home 24/7 so will be here to care for him. I need expert advice.
