WHS to Amputate Husky’s Leg After Break Went Without Care

A one-year-old Husky Shepherd will have her front right leg amputated to improve her quality of life after arriving to the Winnipeg Humane Society.

Yazmine broke her right leg and didn’t receive medical attention, meaning the fracture incorrectly healed and left her with a deformed leg and significant limp.

“There’s a possibility Yazmine’s leg could have been mended had she received care shortly after the injury,” said Dr. Erika Anseeuw, WHS director of animal health.

“Unfortunately that was not the case, but Yazmine will be better off as a three-legged dog than one with a leg that caused such an obstruction.”

Anseeuw will amputate the leg on Thursday, and also perform a spay surgery on Yazmine.

The dog will heal in foster care and then be put up for adoption at the Winnipeg Humane Society.
