When I was at LAH today, I showed Dr. Liston, the x-rays and, what his Vet at KAH said re: their findings. He presented his own professional opinion that there was a growth plate issue that clearly experienced some form of trauma that caused the breaks. 

He agrees that amputation is a very viable option once BHRR's Hercules loses more weight. 

I am going to email over the x-rays for him to view in more depth.
