Im a happy mommy of my pit bull mix named Calvert. He was hit by a car 4 weeks ago and the only injury he sustained was nerve damage to his right front leg. The vet said his radial nerve was most likely severed, which was causing dragging of the leg with no sensation at all. I decided to have my vet amputate the leg. Calvert's paw had sores from dragging and he was constantly getting hung up when walking and tackling the stairs. Today he is 4 days post op and getting around fantastically.
