Bug the Yorkie Gets Microscopic Surgery, Casts, and a Bone Plate for Its Broken Leg

This is BUG, she is a 2lb Yorkie. She was surrendered to a Los Angeles shelter. The puppy mill she came from threw her out because she was flawed. I rescued her. The best of everything. Took her everywhere with me. Then it happened…She slipped out of my arms. I wanted to die. I rushed her to the vet, and x-rays revealed a broken leg.
 
What followed was a nightmare…Microscopic surgery with an Orth surgeon. A custom-made bone plate to pin her leg together. Months of post-op cast and bandage changes, and then months of PT. Without my Petfirst insurance, I would have been in serious debt. The entire episode cost $6,000. PetFirst is not a luxury, but a necessity for all 4 of my dogs.
