The next day, her toe was also visually swollen and she would not let me examine it. I brought her into the hospital immediately for radiographs and discovered she had a broken toe.
to splint and bandage the leg due to her increased level of activity (and the
shifting pressure on her legs due to being a tripod). With a splint, she needed
to receive weekly bandage changes and repeat radiographs during the healing
process. She also needed blood work for her continued anti-inflammation use.
weeks of weekly bandage changes, lots of peanut butter, and strict puppy rest,
Ellie Mae was back to her happy self—with no bandage and a healed toe!
The care she received at Litchfield Veterinary Hospital was not only exceptional medicine, but the experience was also upbeat and fear free. Ellie Mae still loves to come in, be spoiled with peanut butter, and to visit all of her ‘aunties!’
It was a huge relief to not have to choose a treatment that would be better for my wallet, versus a treatment that would be better for Ellie Mae.
Ellie’s total bill for her broken toe was $1,087.60 and Trupanion paid $948.63. I always recommend Trupanion to my friends and family. It’s truly a no-brainer.
