Fen's Fractured Femur

Fen the puppy fractured his femur at only three months of age. Puppies have amazing healing ability, but it is important to ensure the bones are aligned properly. Otherwise, severe deformities could occur.

Dr. Dorian and his team applied a bone plate to the femur to allow it to heal correctly. As you can see, at his final recheck at 8 weeks post op, Fen is doing very well, and his bone has healed perfectly.

You can also see how much he has grown in that time by comparing the size of the plate to the overall length of the bone.
