    It depends on how bad the break is.....and how well it is set! Many times, they need pins to hold a break in place....He may or may not be stiff legged if he can run at all. You need to make sure that the fractures are set properly and that you listen to your vet about cage time and proper management til he's healed.

    We got a pug into rescue that was hit by a car. Someone saw it happen and took her to the vet. The vet set it...but didn't set it properly. She needed surgery and pins put in. Once healed....she walked...but she was stiffer than normal.

    Seeing your little one being okay!

    Have you taken him to a Vet?
    If not then I advise you to get him to a vet ASAP!!
    If you have taken him to a vet to have his injuries treated, then your vet should be able to answer these questions best for you.
    I hope your little puggie heals quickly and properly.

    It really depends on how bad the injuries are and only a vet can tell you that. If it's a simple fracture, it might take 6 weeks to heal. If it's a more serious break, could possibly take longer. You really need to get him to a vet ASAP and you can decide together what he will need to recover or it he thinks he will fully recover. Puppies do heal really fast, so don't wait too long to have him checked out. You don't want the bones to start healing in the wrong position. The sooner you get him to the vet the better. Prayers he will be okay!
