Veterinarians rally to save dog

Iowa veterinarian Denny Woodruff successfully operated to save the leg and life of Rye, a 1-year-old dog who broke his leg and contracted a blood infection after escaping from his owner. Other veterinarians volunteered their services as well after reading in the local newspaper that Rye's owner couldn't afford the operation. "Surgery was a bit difficult since the fracture was trying to heal in a malaligned position and had to be rebroken and properly aligned," Dr. Woodruff said. The dog was expected to go home over the weekend.
