Bionic Ben a 9 month old puppy needs your help
Ben was found as a stray in Mount Vernon, NY apparently abandoned— skin and bones – and with his hind left leg hanging from his body- The broken leg didn’t seem to affect his sweet nature one bit! He wiggled and wagged and won the hearts of the shelter staff- After an X ray was completed it was shown that he had a completely broken femur- This young pup had a femur bone that was in two pieces – We will never know how it happened, but according to the X-ray he had been limping around for 2-3 weeks and luckily did not sustain internal bleeding- Our wonderful Orthopedic Specialist told us the leg was salvageable but required extensive surgery. The following day he met Ben at Petchester Veterinary and performed an extensive and long surgery-The cost of the surgery is $2800
He implanted a metal pin that
enabled the bone to be put back together with an external fixator to hold the pin in place for 8 weeks- He will have a long and difficult recovery, but he will have full use of his leg again and be able to eventually enjoy his life in a home and out of pain.
