"Breaking" News! Bone is Healed!

Maybe Vinson was telling us something we he squirmed out of his splint on Friday.

After reviewing his latest radiographs, the veterinarians have determined that Vinson's fracture is healed! His splint will officially be removed at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 24, exactly four weeks from the date when he broke the leg.

Vinson will be allowed limited activity for the first seven days - continued crate rest with some leash walking but no running - to allow the muscle to regain strength to support his newly-healed bone. After that, he's ready to be a normal puppy again!

More photos and videos to follow.

  1. Haha that's great! I wondered that myself if the wrapping coming off meant it wasn't needed anymore--so nice to be right!
