Bonnie, I hope sweet Skye is ok? hugging

Barb thank you so much for putting the films together, there really is a huge difference wow

Kathy, I will have to watch Miss Moo like a hawk when he is on leashed breaks. I think I will keep her inside so there is no chance of a hit and run.

Thank you all again hugging

Thank you Lisa hugging

Leah I'm sorry I forgot to ask, what has Miss Muppet done to herself to be on lock-down? Hoping it is just a pulled muscle and not her hips or elbows hugging

Rosa had her staples taken out by her regular vet, no need to bring her back to the surgeon. They have a special tool they use and it's super quick.

Brace yourself for how he will look. It is going to be a little scary.

I am not really sure what Rosa did, we were clearing snow and she was by herself wandering around the yard and next thing I knew she was hobbling up to me on three legs! It's her shoulder/elbow again. frown We spoke to her vet, and have an appointment for Monday. For the first 24 hours she refused to put any weight on it, but now she is using it again (whew). We are keeping her crated for another day or two, and giving her Tramadol.

I am kicking myself because we let her go off the Canine Pain Plus pills. I am wondering if this would not have happened if she had still been on them.

Awww Leah, please give Rosa a gentle cuddle from me and I hope Mondays visit shows just a pulled muscle hugging

Thank you all, we got in early to see the surgeon so we are home!!!!
I videoed(sp) our conversation so I won't forget anything important!

He is on Clavumox for 3 weeks, Previcox (half) per day which is what I was giving him anyway. Ace 3 times a day to keep him settled (just given him one now) and his Fentanyl patch and wound dressing comes off on Monday.

We go to our regular vet (like you said Leah!) to have the staples out and Pete wants to see Coop in 6 weeks for follow up xrays.

Crate rest for 6 weeks with toilet breaks on lead and he is allowed to walk slowly up to 10 mins each break.

He has a nasty clipper rash on his scrotum. Vets put something on it but I sprayed this healing solution on it just before I put him in his crate.

Bloody Kong Cloud collars are no chop - he can get to his bottom frown Tried the L and XL frown

Without further ado here is poor bucket head





I don't know how he will get comfy in the crate with the blinken cone on. I may have to put a thinner mattress in?

Ok so whatever food they gave him and I guess a combination of drugs and not being able to get into the proper 'position' has left him with a red, little bit of a bloody anus frown I just fed him and took him out to toilet and the poor boy he was straining for a good 5 minutes to get the first 'piece' out. Then the following was pretty unformed.

So I think what he is trying to lick (can't due to the cone) is his bottom. I will start probiotics tonight and cooked pumpkin from tomorrow but is there anything I could put on his bottom? I'm thinking clean it with salty water and maybe a hemorrhoid cream?

Poor boy and I put the thinner bed in his crate and the huge cone still stops him from moving properly. I have put up a baby gate and he is in my room frown

See memory like a sieve...Pete thinks due to the dengeneration in his left hip, that he will probably need that one done in the future. I just read the notes to my regular vet and "Once we are totally satisfied with the outcome we an consider a left total hip replacement".

I tried to put a warm salt water compress on his bottom and then was going to put Anusol cream but he is lying with his butt pressed up against the wall.

Poor boy - he still looks gorgeous even so! Quynne also had vulval clipper rash the first time but it did settle down quite quickly - she would put "it" somewhere cool too! Maybe arnica would help there too or aloe vera spray - I really don't understand why those bits need shaving. hugging

Thank you Alison, I had totally forgotten about giving him arnica! Do you recall the dose you had Quynne on? My brain is fried.

He had a big drink before but still hasn't wanted to go out for a pee frown

It's great to see Cooper home-but it sounds like you have a mini-intensive care for all those small complications. I have no practical information but lots of hopes for your futures.

When Rosa went through that she held onto her poops FOREVER after she got home so yay that Cooper is able to go. Not so yay that he's got something going on back there. frown

Do you think he would leave the incision alone if you took the cone off? We got really lucky with Rosa that she would leave it alone when we told her. Then again we were with her 24/7, not sure if you are able to do that or not.

No advice for his hind end, sounds really uncomfy though. frown

How are you doing? Are you okay?

Thank you my friends. I don't want to go to sleep so am online thinking!

Lol Mary Jane it feels like that right about now. At least when he was down there, I knew THEY knew what to do!

Leah he wasn't trying to bother the incision at all, he was just trying to lick his bottom frown So I don't think I can take the cone off. I am with him 24/7 too (thus while I'm still up) but when I was trying the cloud collars he was frantic trying to get to his back end frown

Awww thank you for asking hugging I'm just stressed over him, when this is over and I know it worked I'll be ok.
