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 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!
