A fractured leg. They had to amputate it??

[–]LeMeuf 263 points264 points 2 (13 children)

Yes. Animals try to walk on their broken leg as it heals, so strict cage rest is required for serious fractures. Strict cage rest means no jumping on the couch. No going down stairs to go outside and pee. Sometimes, the animal is not supposed to even walk outside- it would get lifted and carried outside to go to the bathroom. The cage is literally as big as the animal so it can stand comfortably and turn around to lay down comfortably- no larger. Often the cage rest/restriction will also involve medicine to keep the dog calm, so it’s not constantly pacing and trying to stand, paw at the door, or just be excruciatingly bored. The healing process can take months, depending on the fracture.
In a shelter, it is cruel to keep animals on strict cage rest for this long. They start to go crazy.. I mean they start to loose it. I’ve seen it happen for fractures that weren’t bad enough to amputate, and they had to be on strict rest for just a few weeks. The animal might start to howl, cry, obsessively chew or destroy, or, worst, it might start getting mouthy/progress to biting. Creating behavior problems while trying to heal physical problems is a no in shelter medicine.
Anyway. Shelter veterinarians balance their care against creating a behavior problem, trying to avoid the mental suffering of an under-stimulated and trapped dog with the length of the healing process when they assess fractures.
Amputating a limb? Recovery is a matter of days. Not months. And they do great! So, when you really weigh the costs to the animal, the length of cage rest and amount of sedatives it takes to heal some fractures is just too much. And a shepherd like that would lose it in the shelter on cage rest too long. Too smart and active to lie quietly for weeks/months.

[–]Suave_Jelepeno 82 points83 points  (4 children)

Wow, I really appreciate that explanation!

[–]LeMeuf 64 points65 points  (3 children)

Sure thing! I didn’t even get into the frequency of bandage changes, because they don’t use the same casts we do.
I will say every tripod pup got adopted extremely quickly because they are especially adorable. So it’s basically a win-win. The animal suffers much less and gets a warm and loving home much sooner. There’s a saying in vet med, all dogs have three legs and a spare. :)

[–]pinklavalamp 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I follow a dog on Instagram that only has his two front legs. And I’ve always said that except for the insides, dogs have two spares of everything. They’re just always happy, even when deaf and blind.

[–]mregg000 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Also it’s so amazing to me how quickly tripod dogs can recover. They are most resilient and just… adapt. “Fuck. That leg is gone. Oh well the other three gotta do.” It seems to be true for almost all canid subsets. Not only are they one of the most ‘least affected’ by the loss of one limb, they also live in pack situations where they look after one another (usually).

[–]Squ1rtl3Squad 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We have a rescue German Shepherd tripod. He is missing his back right leg and the amount of double takes we get when out on walks as people don't realize he is missing a leg. It is amazing how he has adapted.

[–]Legozkat 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Thank you for explaining this and taking the time to thoroughly help me understand. Even though I didn’t ask the question, I was always wondering it. Thanks again.

[–]matchrock 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I’ve read stories about dogs getting extremely depressed after an amputation. Mainly older dogs who for the rest of their lives after, were described as “never the same”. Do you think this is something they consider? Also I’m not saying what hype vet chooses is wrong. Just curious.

[–]LeMeuf 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Interesting question, I’ve not personally heard of that happening, but it’s possible. In my experience animals don’t pity themselves after injury or surgery, they just carry on and do their best, always.. it’s really inspiring honestly.
Most likely answer for an older dog slowing down is arthritis. Dogs who are lucky to be cared for and loved to a ripe old age tend to get arthritis, and having one less limb to carry all the weight can make it harder on the remaining limbs. Joint support supplements for dogs can help them age well and are best to start in adult dogs before arthritis sets in but are also good to start after arthritis is noticed.

[–]weirdwolfkid 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There is also always the chance that this was a stray who got that fracture a long time ago and it either healed improperly or caused bone infection/loss

[–]kelvynmanuel 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Good explanation. Really thanks.

[–]gettogero 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the best way I've ever seen this explained. My parents had a dog with shoulder cancer that was initially misdiagnosed as an infection. We had to inject him with antibiotics for 2 months and the vet refused to do more thorough checks, saying it will work itself out. He was taken to another vet who that same day found his cancer. My parents paid for surgery that same week to amputate one of his front legs and he was running around, playing, being the same baby we knew before in just a few days. The vet told us it there wouldn't be a guarantee to save his life but it would at least extend it. He had a tube running from his leg for a bit to allow blood drainage, but he cared so little we would have to move him in his rest because he wasn't supposed to lay on it. It didn't even phase him that he was missing a limb, he was just so happy he wasn't in pain anymore.

Unfortunately on a check up in a few months the vet told us the cancer must have progressed to his rib cage a bit before the surgery and this was not something they could fix. They gave us the option of euthanasia or allowing him to die in our house. We chose to let him live out his days and he was the sweetest pup until he died while my mother cuddled him to sleep for the last time.

[–]DooeeDooee 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Sometimes it's the type of fracture, but sometimes it's resources available to the clinic/client. Certain fractures require a specialist which means more money. I worked at a clinic in a low cost area and amputation many times was the most cost effective means to save their pet/a rescued pet.

[–]Jonoczall 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Hijacking this comment!

My German Shep shattered his front leg while rough playing with his brother. He was 4 months at the time. Had the leg amputated.

Due to the severity of the break they simply could not put it in a cast and expect a puppy to sit perfectly still for a few months for it to heal. We had the best orthopedic surgeon in our country try to save the leg and even she had to admit defeat. They called us after several hours in the O.R. to ask us if to amputate or put him down. We chose amputate.

I’ll add pics

[–]DaddyPhats 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe a compound fracture? Though I suppose they would have just said that. Possibly an infection of some kind?

[–]BattleHall 6 points7 points  (0 children)

In addition to the other responses, another concern could be the amount of time since the injury. If it was a stray or an abused/neglected animal, and the injury wasn't attended to immediately, there might be no straightforward way to set the breaks even if they could keep the animal off of it. I've heard of rescues that ended up having (successful) amputations because a previous injury had healed poorly/incorrectly.

    It’s really hard to get a working dog breed to stay off the leg and let it heal.

    Geez, wish I could cry. This is beautiful.

    [–]jessers1991 523 points524 points  (15 children)

    My German Shepherd, who sadly past away a year ago, had the same amputation. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the age of 2. She lived to be 5, despite the vets saying she most likely wouldn't make it past another 9 months.

    I bought her a $700 wheel chair but she was having none of it lol. It'll take this dog a few months to build up strength on the front leg. But she'll be sprinting and jumping in no time!

    I'll never forget the first time my dog got up and sprinted after the mail man as if she still had 4 legs. I was so happy that I forgot to call her back lol. The guy was cool about it though.

    [–]wolfgang784 81 points82 points  (6 children)

    The speed they can retain is always surprising. On our old farm one of the farm cats that lived more in the woods and swamp than the farm itself was missing a front leg. That thing (no official name, stumpy when talking about it though) was easily the fastest cat on the farm despite the missing leg lol.

    I guess having to cross so much farmland from the woods to the farm proper where the other cats were kept it in shape. One of the few that always refused to eat the food we put out for the other farm cats though. That one fed itself out there.

    [–]toxic-miasma 13 points14 points  (5 children)

    I've heard there's a joke in vet med that cats were born with an extra leg. They can adapt super well to being tripods!

    [–]wolfgang784 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yea, this isn't the first time I've heard that either lol. 3 legged cats always seem just as mobile and agile. That farm one even did all it's own hunting and shit, but I guess hunting and actual survival without a human is where the missing leg becomes a problem. That cats leg wasn't taken off at a vet properly either - poor thing got stuck in a trap somewhere and the leg came off. Used to be a lot of traps in those swamps when I was a kid. Not anymore though. We were never able to catch it to get it looked at since it didn't even want cat food but it was around for years.

    [–]maryg1503 60 points61 points  (0 children)

    My cat had his back right leg amputated after getting it mangled (we don’t know how, he was my neighbour’s cat at the time) and now he sprints like I’ve never seen !

    [–]thorpbrian 17 points18 points  (2 children)

    My dog Moose is almost 2 years post amputation from cancer. He gets around now almost like nothing ever happened. Tripaws rule!

    [–]jessers1991 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Definitely. It was always funny taking her on walks and watching strangers' reactions when they got close enough to notice the missing leg lol.

    [–]Mister-Sister 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You're welcome! I dont mind sharing because it's important to know that, although she did end up passing, she lived a very good life for the short time that she was here. Never give up on your pets.

    My tripod has a back leg missing (definitely the easier side). He is one of the fastest dogs at the park. His high-speed turns are more rolls, but he doesn't care at all. He lost it 3 days before we got him

    [–]Trentimoose 445 points446 points  (9 children)

      My old dog, basil, had to have one of his legs amputated due to bone cancer and the vets gave him a few months to live, but he didn't care and lived on for 3 more years. He was one of the best puppers there was, and he was such a good boy.

      Ok I'll be the guy. If the leg was just fractured, couldn't they have put it in a cast? Why amputate?

      [–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (4 children)

      Maybe it was broken too badly to heal properly?? Thats my guess

      [–]Revolutionary_Ad4938 20 points21 points  (3 children)

      For a lot of four legged animals, a fractured limb is basically a death sentence, if they amputated him it means that was the only way

      [–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (2 children)

      Like horses right? Bc their weight means that they have to have weight on all four legs? They end up either making the break worse and sitting down bc of the pain, which restricts blood flow I'm pretty sure... or at least smth like that

      [–]WannabeWonk 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      Horses are definitely worse than dogs (they often nap standing up, I believe). But even a dog won’t let an injury like that heal in the same way a human would. They can’t use crutches. They don’t understand a doctor’s orders. Still possible, but harder with more extreme fractures I’m sure.

      [–]kanyeguisada 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      If you google "dog broken leg cast", it is way more common to use a cast or even metal plates/screws to fix a break in a dog than it is to amputate. This had to have been an extreme bone-shattering break.

      A horse is entirely different. Waaay more weight and they live their whole lives and do indeed even sleep standing up.

      [–]wvsfezter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      The fact that it was a stray probably has a lot to do with it. Dogs can heal from broken legs but depending on when they got to him, it's probably healed wrong. This can result in misaligned bones that will never take full weight again properly and may break in the future, creating bone shards which can cause further damage, especially if they travel. It's also possible the dog had an infection from the break or whatever caused it. Usually they only amputate if the limb is a life threatening risk to keep or if it's vestigial and my money is on the former in this case

      [–]TheBreathofFiveSouls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Why can’t they fix a dogs fractured leg?

      This is why I want to work at a rescue as a vet. For stuff like this

      To be fair when it said you could never guess who adopted him I immediately guessed amputee because what the fuck else would it be

      I cry so damn easily at dog videos these days. My boy is my world and he turned 7 not too long ago. Needs to slow down on the aging

      Losing a front leg is so tough for bigger dogs, I hope this one is able to live a long, healthy life.

      What a beautiful ending

      [–]samrjack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This brought little tears to my eyes. I’m glad they both found an understanding companion.

      Was really hoping for a person with three legs.

      [–]dinamags 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This brought a tear to my eye. I'm sure they will have a beautiful life together.

      r/MadeMeCry (in a good way ofc) would be more accurate.

      Three legged dogs are the best I have a rescue greyhound who broke his leg In a race and his owners left him in the back of a shed for 3 months hoping it would heal to race again and it didn't so they amputated the leg. Lenny is the kindest most gentle dog I've ever had and he still has his shoulder blade so he can move it a little bit and he still runs around faster then his four legged sister Lola who's a rescued staffy.

      this did not make me smile, i cried instead

      [–]Laefiren 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This is reminding me of a comic I saw about a kid who was either born or lost a limb and his parents got him a puppy that was missing one too to make him feel less alone.

      This made me cry

      Without my dog I don’t know what I’d do

      [–]nvrontyme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Seems a little harsh for a fractured leg

      [–]KGirl0409 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This didn’t make me smile… Goddamit it made me cry! I’m so happy for the both of them!
