This is Moto. He’s and English mastiff. He is my in laws dog and lives out in the country by the sand hill state park. Last night we got the call that the neighbors had found Moto on the side of Valley road left for dead. We thought he had been hit by a car. It was too bloody to tell. His whole leg/hip is swollen the size of a soccer ball. We took him to Central Kansas Veterinary Clinic in South Hutchinson. They did X-rays and found his whole bone had been shattered and had buckshot. The vet said it is bad, worse than they had thought. Bone fragments are everywhere. They vet said they wouldn’t suggest an amputation because of the size of Moto (120 lbs) it may be hard for him to get up on one leg especially with hip dysplasia, plus all the weight he would now have on only 3 legs. They reached out to a specialist to see if they could get us in because a our vet can’t do plates, wires and screws on his leg because it is so messed up and it’s above their pay grade. They explained it to us that his leg is a puzzle right now and the only way a specialist can repair his leg is if they can get all the bones to fit right. With going to a specialist it is going to cost a lot more than we had expected to pay for a normal vet.
