i was just thinking of your dog and hoping she is recuperating well.

so nice to know you're keeping her in your thoughts :) thankyou
Shes slowly recovering, very slowly, but recovering just the same. Still dressing changes every 3 days, lots of drugs. Shes bored outta her mind being confined to a playpen all day, but healing is coming along. Still battling infaction in one of the wounds...boosted her antbiotics.. It was so bad we're looking at about 6-8 weeks or healing if it continues the way it has been. Thankfully shes so high on codine she doesnt even know shes hurt. Which is why keeping her still is almost impossible. She just loves the extra attention as we have to bring her EVERYWHERE so she doesnt naw her bandages off. The other dogs are mad at her and jealous lol
Were keeping our hopes up. Next thing we know she may be good as new. HOPFULLY.
thanks for caring, keep prayin' for her :)

Poor baby. Looks painful :(

10-06-2011, 11:22 AM
oh my!!! how aweful! that is alot of healing needed.

10-06-2011, 12:36 PM
awh poor dolly :( good to hear that she is on the mend now though!

10-07-2011, 10:49 AM
poor puppy.....glad to hear no surgery will be needed not that you can put a price on it but I am sure the pocket book is happy as well.....physio will be a good thing, hopefully she will be mobile quickly.

10-07-2011, 12:48 PM
I cant deny that its easier on my bank account, but I can also agree that it wouldn't matter in the least just the same. Shes already VERY mobile. she uses her foot to the best of her ability without hurting herself. She has however lost ALOT of muscle mass in the last few weeks from not using it properly. Her other rear leg is MASSIVE from supporting all her weight and the other is wimpy looking. Looks kinda ridiculous. lol
Everyday that passes I'm even more confident that she'll be back to her mischevious, bossy ole' self in no time. I count my blessings for that. :)

wow, that does look painful....but the wounds look nice and clean. You are doing a great job taking care of them :) I am so sorry that happened to her.

Its getting better everyday. Shes a royal pain in the ass though. We rub extra hot horseradish on her bandages and the dummy STILL eats them off!!! Guess its better cause im cleaning and changing dressings every day. But shes driving me mad. lol Heres an updated pic of her leg. All necrotic tissue has subsided, the tissue is nicely granulatedand the redness is going away(if she'd stop eating it!!!)

She's got a sweet face, beautiful dog.

10-13-2011, 01:44 PM
thankyou, her soul is as sweet as her face. Truly a blessing to our family. Into the vet this morning, said to keep doing whatever im doing as its healing up sooo well! :) After she done her healing they'll have to xray her and see what we can do about the dislocated toe.
They will likely have to open her back up to fix the toe. Poor peanut.
