Our poor Molly has a fractured metatarsal. She is now wearing a splint. This will have to stay on for approximately 6 weeks. The vet hopes to give her a try without the splint at 5 weeks when the pups are due to arrive.
The good news is we have plenty of time to prepare for the extra hard work the splint will bring.
Although far from ideal at least we now know what the problem is and the best way forward.
