Eli is a very young (15 week old) chocolate boy who was found with two littermates around Christmas time. At about 14 weeks of age he began limping and not putting much pressure on his right front leg. At his first vet visit, they thought he may just have a dislocated elbow, but asked the applicant to take him to a clinic that did Ortho work. Upon x-rays it was determined that he had fractured the top of his right humerus.
On advice from this vet, his person went ahead and had the surgery done - for best results and to avoid possible amputation. This surgery was done on 20 February and so far he seems to be doing well. His prognosis is good, although they are unsure if he will need surgery in the future, as he grows. He will be going back for x-rays a couple of times post surgery to verify that he is healing properly.
Thanks to your continued support Labrador Life Line was able to assist with the costs incurred to help this young dog to recover.
