This little puppy was found at the road side drain hole in front of primary school at Salak South Garden when I'm feeding the strays as usual around 10pm. He is crying loud until his mother (the stray I feeds) found he was injured & he is crawling very fast and hide inside the drain hole. I use torch light to check what's happened to him, I noticed his legs were pose in abnormal pose in the drain hole, I think he's ran over by a car few hours ago because the blood on his body already dried.
After 45min I managed to get him out from the drain hole without attack by his mum. I can't send him to veterinary immediately as I only know See Veterinary & it's closed. I decided to keep him until next morning. When I check his legs I found his right leg not only broken but there is an open wound with bone exposed.
I send him to the vet in morning, doctor has checked on him, both his legs are confirm broken, his right leg has to amputate but the surgery can't proceed immediately because the puppy look very pale and he is very weak, his wound is bleeding for whole night. He loss too much blood. He needs to take injections to stabilise his condition and get the wound wrap to avoid infection.
He is send for x-ray in the 5th day. The right leg is more terrible than what doctor thought. The right leg bone is broken until the bikini part, the amputation is until bikini part because the bone (x- ray picture) have hurt all bikini part muscle. The little puppy only go for surgery on 7th day because his blood level is extremely low which is not advise to go for surgery.
After surgery he is getting better for first 2days but the Ĺ shape stitch wound is infection due to the angle. But his left leg bone is start join back so doctor advise to keep his left leg but needs to let the left leg rest at least 3 months.
Seen the left leg is recover by itself so doctor will not go for further surgery but the medication cost, hospitality cost and amputation charges cost RM 2046.40 after I keep asking for discount as this is a stray puppy. The puppy will discharge in this Thursday and I will keep him until he's fully recover and get adopted.
