Hi Fran,
It depends on where and how the arm is broken as
to how to repair it and what other options might work.
A bone plate would be hard to do on such a small
bone. Possibly a splint for 6-8 weeks will work if
surgery is not an option. Since he is still real young
a splint might work, but again it depends on where and how
it is broken.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
