Please Pray for Our (Petfinder) "Brook"

You may remember that we rescued Brook in late March. She had a broken leg and was wearing a cast. We brought her to our vet after we adoped her; he told us she was doing great and recasted her. Well, today was the day to re-evaluate and remove the cast. We knew there was a problem when we hadn't heard from our vet in 6 hours.

Here's the short version: we took her immediately from our vet to the orthopedic surgeon who operated on Milo. We were then given this diagnosis : "It has healed, unfortunately, without the surgery I would have done to correct it at the time of injury. All we can do now is put her into physical therapy and hope she will use the paw. If not, we will have to AMPUTATE." At that point, I started crying. I don't know who to blame - the rescue group's vet or my own for making it seem she was just fine. I guess none of that matters at this point. She begins PT on Thursday. We need all your good wishes. She's a fighter and so are we; we will do our best and move on from there. Please join us in our fight.

I'm so sorry. Poor Brook. I'm sending healing vibes for her and praying for her to use the paw. God bless you both in this struggle.

My heart goes out to little Brook and her continued struggles. She'll be in my thoughts over the next weeks as she does her PT.

Pace and Felice

I'm so sorry to read this, Joyce. I will definitely be praying that little Brook will respond favorably to the PT and will be walking completely normally on that leg one day soon
