my golden retreiver, 2 yrs old, went out and got himself hit by a car.
it was my fault, i had him off leash and he took off after a cat and the cat ducked out into a street and boom.

now it was a glancing blow and not too fast, but my dog (leo) ended up with a broken hind leg, i believe the tibia.

he is now at vet and he will be filmed, and the vet said he will probably need to have the fracture "nailed".

so whats the deal, i know in humans, intramedullary nailing is common, and gives the best answer for long bone fracture, but is this true also in dogs??

will he limp or does this have long term sequelae?

im obviously upset about the whole thing (esp because i should know better) but also releived that he didnt end up dead on the road.

all input would be appreciated...

I'm not a vet Bach ... but I'm sorry this happened. I hope your dog does well and gets better soon.

Bach, what does that mean, "he will be filmed", is that an actual film of the dog walking to see how his leg moves?
Please don't be too hard on yourself for letting him run off-leash, we all like to grant our animals the joy of running free now & then, unfortunately it sometimes ends sadly. I'm so glad it is only a broken leg, at least it's fixable.

I am so sorry, Bach. Our Sheltie took off like a bullet when she was just a year old to "herd" the tires of a SUV right in front of our house AND ME.

She barely survived the first night after being treated for shock. Both her hips were broken. Our wonderful vet sent us to the best veterinary neurosurgeon for a consult then on to one of the best veterinary orthopedic surgeons in the U.S.

After 5 hours of surgery she had steel plates placed in her hips and now, at age 5, still wants to "herd" cars. confused

I'm so sorry, Bach - I will be of little help to you. I remember almost no small animal orthopaedic stuff from when I was in school (plus I'm sure some of it has changed) - and I did horses when I was in practice. Just make sure you ask lots of questions. You may also be able to find some answers on the internet.

Keep us posted.

Except, the correct terminology is "He will be radiographed."

and u were't quick enough with the quote thingie. HA!

:p laugh :p laugh

(seriously, though - so sorry about your dog. I've always been so amazed at what animals can bounce back from. How well their body is able to heal itself. Even without our help. He'll be fetching a ball for you in no time.)

bachophile, I'm sorry about your dog's broken bone. Hope he's not in much pain. If he's only two, he should heal quickly, right?

My friend's Old English Sheepdog has pancreatis (or however you spell it.) She's worried sick. Our pets are our best friends, you know?

what i found amazing was his abililty to stand pain.
execpt for the initial yelp when he was hit, he was quite calm, even when vet was examining and trying to splint the leg.

just as a comparison, a few weeks ago during a stint in reserves, i had to extract a guy who fell into a hole inside a cave and shattered his tibia.

when i had to splint his leg to get him into a strectcher, he screamed in agony (and thats after getting a healthy hit of morphine)

amazing, u can learn alot from a dog, alot of dignity.

Bach, sorry to hear about Leo. Golden Retreivers are great dogs; always had one as a family pet growing up. Best of luck.

Bach,
So sad to hear about your beloved dog. I hope he heals quickly. They really are just like our children and we feel their pain. Stock up on doggie cookies!

the xray showed a midshaft break tibia/fibula. fortunatly no joint damage at all.

he will get an intramedullary nail and leo should be good as new.

the vet kept saying, he is such a goodnatured dog, he never complained or cried, just behaved well inspite of the discomfort.

ill let u know when he is home post-op.

Somewhere in these threads is the story of our dog nearly dying after getting hit by a car. This was right after Derick's thread about his cat nearly dying. (and then several spin-off sock puppet threads in very poor taste, but admittedly rather funny). What these animals *put* us through. Thankfully, as Jodi says, they do have amazing bouncability.
