    So happy to her in is nothing serious, and she has a speedy recovery. What I have read on growth plates is it depends on the dog. Most dogs that weight between 25 to 90 lbs. it can take up to 14 months for some of the plates to harden. Some may harden at 4 months. Your vet can do an x-ray to see which plates have or have not hardened.

    Great news! What a relief. Be sure to keep that little one quiet/caged/leashed. Rest will be the best thing for that leg. From my experience--if they don't rest and let the injury heal it will keep creeping up over and over again. (like a bad rash)

    Let us know if the diagnosis changes. Relax and enjoy the good news!

    Terrific News! I am so happy that your worries have been limited with a soft tissue diagnosis.

    As far as the fused plates......Girls always mature faster than boys, At least that was what my mom told me in Junior High!

    Always with me
