Vet Has ‘Concerns’ About Trooper – Dog Thrown From Moving SUV
Although both the dogs are acting and feeling better, there are some concerns about Trooper and his latest blood work results.
Trooper was the most severely injured beagle coming to the Broome County Humane Society with numerous injuries including two fractured legs, broken ribs, a lung contusion, and more. After X-rays and seeing an orthopedic specialist he had surgery in an attempt to keep both legs, but due to the extent of his injuries, only one could be saved.
The Broome County Humane Society told us Trooper is recovering well, eating, moving around and is in great spirits. They are monitoring him for some concerns relating to his blood test results-which is not uncommon after this type of trauma and surgery. We have authorized additional testing and diagnostics to identify any underlying causes.
Fortunately, Adam who must have some emotional issues after this awful experience has survived with only road rash.
