Q. What happens when a puppy recovers from a fracture from the legs? Will it affect its nerve? And not be able to walk again?
A. The location and severity of a fracture play large roles in the recovery process. Treated properly, there is little chance the pup will have major lameness as it grows up. Most dogs do well on 3 legs if necessary. Consider a consult with a veterinary orthopedic specialist to discuss prognoses.

A. It will likely not affect the nerves but depending on the fracture repair technique and condition the limb might or might not be slightly deformed (most of the time it's not, especially if repaired with surgery), sometimes there could be a slight limp even after recovery but most of the time the recovery should be 100%.
