First month as a tripawd!

Fun in the garden with mom and nurse moe.

Well we made it through our first month! Its had its ups and downs but over all roane is doing great! We had a minor snag when we tried to stop her meds at 2 weeks post op. Thankfully our vet is wonderful and switched her to half doses. The extra time has made her much more comfortable and given her the time she needed to heal.  Shes even started laying on her right side! Right now we’re working on building up the good leg. Slow and steady!

This week has been amazing. Roane is more like her old self. Shes moving better and is playful again! Lastnight after dinner and a short zoom around the back yard she brought me her squeaker for a short tug of war before she killed it!

Giving momma some love ❤

My doggy lesson for the month is that at the end of the day you have to enjoy life. A good lay down in the grass with the ones you love for a nice belly rub is what life should be about❤❤❤

Thank you tripawd friends for being there for us!

Week 2, stitches are out!

Week 2 has been really good for roane shes starting to move around more and has more confidence on the stairs and the kitchen floor. Its so good to see my big girl coming back! ❤

Yesterday we had a great trip to the vets and got those itchy stitches taken out. The Dr. says my incision looks great! I had so much fun riding in the car and visiting my favorite tech anna that i needed a nap!

 

 

1st week as a tripawd

Well we made it through our first week as a tripod! Go roane!  I wont say it was easy,  but all things considered we did pretty well. Roane is healing nicely, shes still a little shaky and unbalanced. We’re hopeful that when she stops taking the pain meds she will be a little more solid. Shes been moving around more and more. She even walked all the way over to the garden yesterday for a nice nap in the grass while mom and moe cat did some weeding. When we came back from the garden she insisted on trying the big stairs to the front porch! Only 5 steps but it looked like a mountain to mom! She did it with mom spotting her with the grocery bag sling. 🎉🐾🎉🐾

Eating this week has been a little challenging. For a big girl roane eats suprisingly little and when it gets hot out she eats even less. We’ve been spoiling her with some extra special food to get her medication in her.

I think we have also managed to get to the itchy portion of her incision healing.  Mom walked away for a minute lastnight since roane was sleeping like a log. Suprise! Jokes on mom, roane was not sleeping and had a good lick at her stitches! Naughty roane! Now you get the funny hat!

We still have a bit to go but the sparkle is starting to come back! Thank you tripawd friends we couldnt have made it through the week with out you cheering us on!

❤ Bev, Roane & nurse moe

Day 4

day 4 and our girl is doing great! Made it outside all by herself this morning. We even had a small walk around the back yard and a little sit down to survey our kingdom. she seems to be bouncing back nicely. she has no interest in her incision and she’s eating well.  honestly I think she’s a little board being in the house lol have to make sure the chipmunks aren’t invading!
