Splint care and tips

1975 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  LeoRose
My 12 week old border collie was running around playing with my older dog jumped off the couch, landed wrong and broke her leg. The vet splinted her left hind leg and gave some meds for pain. Shes still super restless and uncomfortable (no surprise) any tips on how to help her? We put her on a big dog bed but doesnt seem to help her much. Tried a kong and some toys which helped for maybe 10 min. I just feel sad for her.

My sister once took in a kitten that had broken a leg. The problem was that because the kitten was growing, the cast had to be redone often to accommodate the growth. I'd think that could be a problem with a 12-week old puppy also. Maybe that's the reason for a splint as opposed to cast?
