Featured Pet: Shortie

shortie_crebsThis adorable little tripod is Shortie Crebs. Don’t let his small size fool you though…he is full of personality and spunk. Mr. Crebs came to us in early November with an injury to his front, right leg. Apparently this little guy found himself in the unfortunate situation of having a neighbor dog try to pull him through a fence, breaking his leg irreparably. After reviewing the case, Dr. Joe made the difficult decision to remove the leg instead of putting Shortie through multiple surgeries that may or may have ended in him being able to use it again. Through many months of in-house and at-home physical therapy, Shortie is doing extremely well; almost to the point that he’s forgotten he’s actually missing a leg! His owners report to us that he got hooked on a certain treat while he was recovering at home and now chases them around the house for it. We are very pleased with how far he has come and look forward to many more visits with the Crebs.
