    Default Chesney broke his front foot

    On our wet holiday in Cornwall (not a patch on the west coast of Ireland). We went to the Trevano gardens, got caught in a shower and waited with many others in the porch of a conservatory for it to stop raining. Then all of a sudden the doors closed, no warning, no obvious signs, and closed over poor chesney's foot. Took him straight to a lovely vet in Hayle (Animal Vet Services) where Johan xrayed him and fixed him up. He's been in a cast for 3 weeks and is having another dressing back at our local vets today. I hope he heels up ok, he had only just started cocking his leg (9mths), so falls over now when he tries to balance his leg.

    Anybody have any similar problems?

    How long is he likely to be in a cast?

    We hope only 4-6 weeks.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Chesney's poor little foot! That's purely awful and must have really hurt.

    Sounds like you had a good vet and I'm sure he'll be his old self as soon as the cast comes off. I can't comment on the timing, sorry!

    Oh my goodness the poor little guy! I hope he heals quickly,seeing as he's so young I expect it will.It must be interesting trying to keep the cast dry.
