Playful Pointer sisters overcome separation anxiety

Chica, a 2 year old female German Shorthair Pointer, had a broken forearm (radius and ulna) that required a plate Chica 5(1)and screws to fix. I operated at Berks Animal Emergency and Referral Center. You can see the broken arm and the repair x-rays below.

Chica had just a tiny bit of separation of anxiety during her recovery, which may have resulted in a bathroom becoming a little messier than normal.

Well over a year after surgery, her owner sent me a wonderful video of Chica playing with her sister.

Can you tell which one is Chica?

She’s the taller one!
