It’s not very often that Fig isn’t smiling, but we’re not quite sure about this thing yet.
When we adopted Fig we were told he would need either a prosthetic or for his leg to be amputated. This is because since his is missing his foot his wrist couldn’t support his weight his entire life and would ultimately lead to more problems later.
Since then we have been on a long journey to get him his prosthetic. Somewhere along that journey we learned from our vet that he actually has remaining parts of his foot and wouldn’t need it for full time use, but that it would help on walks and when he was outdoors.
To begin the process of getting his prosthetic he first had to be casted. This is what would be used to determine the size of the prosthetic. We did this during his neuter last year to make sure that we wouldn’t need to sedate him more than once. Unfortunately that casting did not turn out as well as we had hoped which set us back a few months. Doctor Derrick with @bionicpets , offered to come down himself to recast Fig’s foot. This however would mean that Fig would have to go under anesthesia once again, which I wasn’t keen on. Doctor Derrick was nice enough to work around this for us and sent this sleeve so that we are able to make sure it fits perfectly before proceeding to make the full prosthetic. Now we send it back and wait!
