Michael is an injured dog that came into the Chipley, Fl shelter
with pretty significant injuries that needed to be treated ASAP.
Info: Michael is 68 lbs and about 1-2 year old. He had a bone
sticking out of his leg that was severely infected. It is an old
injury. He got xrays that confirmed the fracture is trying to heal
itself. The bone that was sticking out has been removed. Dr.
Graham thinks if they can get the infection healed on his leg
that they have a chance of saving his leg. It will probably not
be normal but it will probably be functional. Worse case scenario,
it can be amputated later. But, she thinks it is worth trying to
save. He has been neutered, got shots, heartworm test, etc.
Michael was boarded at the Vet's office for ten days so his leg
could heal. We didn't want him going back to the shelter with a
gaping hole in his leg.
