krissn333 Posted August 23, 2013 Share Posted August 23, 2013 I know we've had a puppy or two here with a rear leg amputated, but, has anyone ever had a puppy with a front leg amputated (not due to osteo)? I'm interested to hear about long-term mobility. I know that ADULTS that have a front leg amputated sort of adapt the alignment of the remaining front leg to support their weight...and sometimes that causes some musculoskeletal issues, etc. But if a puppy grows up only moving that way, I would be inclined to think that their body would adapt and grow as needed from the get-go... Any experience/stories are appreciated!
