So our now almost 5 month old puppy was hit by a car when he was 7 weeks old. He had his splint taken off today, but the vet said he needs to be on cage rest for another 3-4 weeks. This poor dog has been on cage rest for almost 3 months as it is... I know he said his leg would be stiff and he would need it worked for a day or two, so I u d'état ad the cage rest for a few more days, or even a week, but seriously another month? I don't understand. The vet told us, 20 mins to do his business outside every 3-4 hrs. That all the activity he should get for the next month... Dh took him and didn't ask why, but that's my question, why? If his leg is healed, and healed properly, why can't he be out longer? Why so much cage rest??Answer Question

I can understand not wanting to keep him quite for any longer. My youngest dog looked like this until he was about 4 or 5 months old. But you don't want him to over do it right now because he could easily re break that leg if he is to active right now. When my dog was that age I wanted to be able to take him out with my other dogs but could nto risk it.
