The vet was willing to try a procedure to cut the nerves so the puppy did not feel the pain. It was worth a try he was a real sweetheart. I'm not sure the name of what he did, but it worked, the dog lived a long and happy life, he would climb 4 foot fences easily. I can give you the name of the vet if they want to call him and ask what it was he did.
Thank you for your offer. I will speak with them, but I got the feeling last night that they have accepted this and will not be searching any further for treatments.
