How long does a broken dogbone take to heal?

The needed healing time for a broken dogbone depends on how young your dog is and which bone is fractured. It can take from four weeks if your dog is young up to eight weeks if you have an older dog.

Additionally, the time needed also depends on the activity your dog gets after a fracture. The less movement, the better. Because movement in the fractured area can cause improper healing and prolonged healing time. If you can’t restrain your dog from excess movement, the healing process can be prolonged for many months.
