Looking and Moving Better Already

View of Vinson from above his crate. He is laying down in a crescent shape that shows his left hind leg looking very good!
Left Hind Leg Already Doing Much Better

Just 24 hours after having his splint removed, Vinson's leg already looks a little better and he's doing very well at putting weight on the leg on controlled leash walks. He also stopped licking the leg shortly after the splint was removed.

Vinson will occasionally lift the leg to reduce weight on it, but has already made noticeable improvements in a very short time.

Similar to a person recovering from an injury, Vinson's body seems to be telling him to get some extra rest. He has spent some extra time in the crate and seems very content to sleep. That's not to say that he doesn't have his trigger moments when that natural puppy energy wants to burst out of him, but that's where careful supervision comes in!

I took the photo in this article just a couple of minutes ago in my office. The most viewable hind leg (his left) is the one that was broken, but as you can see, it's already looking pretty normal!

Careful healing continues...
