Bianca,

I was traveling, I tried to keep up with you and Coop, sorry I didn't post.

It looks like you and your parents have created the ideal dog sanitarium, complete with the throw to ward off cool air.

Thanks for keeping Cooper's many fans updated,

all the best,
MJ

Thank you my friends hugging Not much to report other than he is being such a good boy with his heat packs. And he is getting SO strong, I have to wear my runners to take him out otherwise he darn near pulls me over.

Bianca, how delightful that there is really nothing new to report! Your darling Coopie Pie is growing stronger and more well by the day, because of your loving kindness and knowledgeable, attentive care of him. Cooper sure is lucky to have you for a Mum! hugging

Bianca, I am glad that Coppie is feeling better. I can't wait until he is fully recovered, he is going to have a great time.

Just wondering if the pain he was in was the cause of the aggressive behavior before the surgery. I know when I am in pain I can be short tempered, so I think it could be the same for dogs.

Hey Bianca, did they run any pre-surgery bloodwork? Just a reminder to ask for a copy of it while you're still in contact with the surgeon.

Thank you so much all for being on this roller coaster journey with us hugging

laugh at rollerblades! I can imagine him dragging me on my backside!!!!

Val, I think you may very well be right. I was shocked when the surgeon told me how much worse his hip was compared to a year ago.

Lisa not that I am aware of. I know they sent a culture away of the site and that came back clear (he still has a week or so of abx left). I will ask next time I email though as I need to know if my local vet can do the 6 week post-op xrays (pretty sure that's what we did last time).

I let Coopie out for a couple of hours each day when it's warmish as he loves being out. Today I have employed Moo as his babysitter! Poor girl!

Cooper has had more than enough of all vets so I think I will just do as mentioned and if it gets worse then go that route.


ETA: I've also upped his Arnica from 4 to 5, 4 times a day.

I forgot to barricade my bed this morning nono




OMG, he looks so comfy, cozy on the bed!!! What a cutie patootie!!!

I'm sure it feels like this is taking forever, but try to think of the days ahead when this will all be memories. Soon he will be running and playing and having the time of his life and you will be so proud for all you've done to help him. hugging Your amazing!!!

Thank you so much Rosa and Lisa hugging

I don't feel amazing, I just want him to be better NOW laugh He's starting to be a brat with Molly. I really don't think this was pain related but this morning I had them both in my make-shift enclosure in the sun (on the deck). I started brushing Molly and he went for her. He was prior to that lying on his duvet chewing an antler.
