Good Morning Matte and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about Monster's condition....since he is so young, Matte, this can heal totally with cage rest and will not damage anything else. The young staffies heal very well and this sesamoid bone will be able to heal without any problem later in life. If for some reason, it is difficult to keep Monster quiet and the bone does not heal well, surgeons can make sure that it remains in place and heals so his long term prognosis will be excellent. Conservative treatment of traumatic sesamoid injuries are very successful, Matte, so keep up the good work.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
