How do you take care of a broken dog leg?

My dog is frustrated.


Answer by  Aumlanka (291)

First you must take it to the veterinarian and make sure it is indeed broken. The vet can set it and put a cast on the leg. Depending on how bad the break is the dog may be able to walk with the cast. If not you will just have to be patience and help your dog be comfortable.

First things first, the dog must go to the vet to get a cast put on and even to make sure it is broken. Usually they can give you some pain killers to give your dog to help. Other then that make sure it is comfortable and they have to do the rest themselves.

A dog with a broken leg will need to see a vet to make sure it is set properly to insure that it will heal properly.

First make sure the animal keeps the leg dry, use a plastic bag to put over the leg and use a hair tie to secure it .Help the dog outside to do it's duties then bring in and keep him fairly confined in a warm cosy place.Soft music helps them.

I am assuming you are asking how to care for it after you have visited your veterinarian office. You dog will remain frustrated for awhile as his/her mobility has been limited. Continue to follow your veterinarian's instruction and keep him/her as comfortable as possible.
