Call and ask these guys, they should at least be able to point you in the direction of being able to do something yourself.

Not too far from you

Care center in coldwater will open for you. Unless you are trying to avoid the fees. Dr. Landford owns it and is the nicest guy you would ever hope for.

Most offices have an emergency # day or night, it may cost you extra but if it were me I would call. If no 24 hour # you need a new vet. How does a dog break it's own leg?

They are next door to my work. They will do a great job. I have used them in the past. AVOID the other one on burdic st. I think its the Kalamazoo animal hospital. It looks like the same sign but its an awful place.

Hope your little guy is ok.

My buddy had a yorkie break it's own leg just jumping off the last step of his deck to the ground. Some friends of mine Dachshund herniated a disc in it's neck just going down the stairs in their house. My mom woke from a nap one day to find her little doxie wimpering in it's bed , she called to her to come out and she came out dragging her back legs. She eventually had to put her down as somehow she had ruptured 3 disc in her spine and the fluid buildup was making everthing else shut down due to the pressure on the nerves. So yes these little dogs can and do hurt themselves somehow. Best of luck with your buddy and prayers for ya.

I dont know that side of the but I do know a good one over here. Town and Country in Brighton. They are 24 hours and are Great people. They do wonderful job but are a bit pricey due to the 24 hour care.

That place is maybe 1 min from my house, but I can't say anything about their service.

Hope your pooch makes a full recovery.

Glad to know it was only a dislocated shoulder and not a broken leg.

I want one of these dog so badly but I have one that is more attached to me then these guys get.
