Poot was run over while working on the ranch

Poot was helping do his nightly job on the ranch when he accidently got under the feed wagon and severely fractured his leg. The fracture was one of the most difficult veterinarians encounter. The joint was exposed, highly contaminated, and all the supporting soft tissue around it was compromised. It left us with two choices a fusion or amputation. Given the high level of contamination and high probability of complications, an amputation was the path taken.
