Default Broken leg

Hi All

I was here posting a few weeks ago about the fragility of Yorkshire Terriers, and now unfortunately we've found about it for real. In a horrible, horrible incident the other day, I got in from work and managed to stumble over the dog as she got under my feet (she suddenly ran forward as my momentum was going forward; I adjusted mid stride to try and land my foot elsewhere, and she went in the same direction). Safe to say it was really distressing incident for all concerned, but is fortunately not as bad as it potentially could have been. She's fractured her thigh bone, and has had a pin put in to secure the two halves. The vet seems satisfied that it's all pretty normal, and that the operation went well. All the books I have tell me she should make a full recovery, I really just wanted (hopefully!) some reassurance from any of you that this has happened to. As you can imagine I'm feeling incredibly guilty about the whole thing, and am only getting consolation from the fact that she'll be okay, and back to normal once the bone has healed - she does mean the world to us! She's a very lively and lovable puppy and I can't bear the idea of having done her any long term harm - or even taken any of the life out of her. She was obviously in shock straight afterwards, but it was reall dreadful to have to see her go so "floppy" having moments before been so excited. The following morning - pre operation - she had a bit of her old self back, and I'm just really hopeful that in time she'll be completely back to normal. Can anyone reassure me that this is the case??

I'm so sorry she broke her leg. It's not your fault! These things happen. Like your vet said, she will get better.

Wishing her a speedy recovery.

Awww, poor girl. I hope she heals quickly. Accidents like that happen. You can't blame yourself.

I bred cats for 20 years & always had little kittens romping under foot. I learned to "shuffle" my feet instead of walk normally so I wouldn't step on them. I still do it now as it is a hard habit to break after 20 years Mark laughs at me & a few of my friends have noticed I do that in the house when in bare feet.
