UPDATE 1/29/18:Stella’s leg is healing nicely. She will go back to the vet in 6 weeks for x rays and should be able to start physical therapy right away. The doctors have determined that her leg will stay turned in due to knee damage from the rod the previous vet put in her leg. He said she will have 50- 65% use of the leg in the next 5 months. It will never be better than 65% due to nerve damage.
UPDATE 2/15/18: Stella has begun her physical therapy and is making great progress. She is a happy puppy and is getting stronger every day. We received some good news for Stella — a very experienced puggle owner who is also medically minded and fully prepared to take responsibility for Stella’s rehabilitation has stepped up to adopt her. While we are happy to know that all of Stella’s future medical needs will be met we still have to pay for her medical bills to this point which have quickly exceeded over $4,000!
