Our 8 lb Poodles
shoulder is dislocated from to the groomers, its been a bout 3 weeks now ive seen our local vet who saw him and did x rays and tried to put it back in and it has atrophied so much it falls back out. he referred me to a board certified surgeon who did more xrays, which i said not to, due to cost & the day prior i had his x rays done, I gave vet a day old copy of them, he said hell have to do surgery which is ok, to either pin it or fuse or to take his right arm off!!!!!! it and its going to cost me aprox 3k to 4k and he kept telling me how nice my watch was and my wedding ring was. and that he is the only type of doctor that can preform such a procedure on him.
**Is this true?
**Can any other vet do a surgery for Koda that will do just the same type of repair or do they Have to be a (board certified) doctor?
** Can I leave his arm as is for now or permanently? with out any more damage to him?,
Its the cost that I (can not) produce for Koda, & little Koda Bear doesn't seem to be in pain any longer,
**Can he be helped by a regular vet that doesn't cost so much????, or another procedure to help him?, other than amputating his arm.
** Any suggestions??? Please!!!
Thank you ***** *****
