Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

More updates! A week's worth. :) Saw the Chiro again on Monday, and that went well. The chiro said that Riddle held about 80% of her adjustment, so that's good! we go back in a month for another recheck. Physical therapy Tuesday and Thursday were amazing. Riddle is now jogging 4 minutes out of 20 in...

Re: TTA surgery for Riley - tips?

Riddle had her second TTA surgery six weeks ago. I've been keeping a journal on her recovery here:

Hopefully that helps a little!

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Little update. :) Riddle is doing 15 minute walks twice daily now! She's also doing 5 reps of cross leg stands twice a day... I pick up the right rear and front left leg so she stands on the "bad" leg and diagonal front leg for 3 seconds. Her scar is tiny! http://img.photobucket.com/albums...

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

Because the FDA, The Delta Society, and AAHA also have similar position statements, and the AVMA is following suit. Because raw food ALWAYS has bacterial contamination, and cooked food does not. I cook my food, and there's good reason for it. Because position statements are stepping stones to publi...

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

But dogs shedding salmonella from kibble can make Grandma on chemo ill, children ill, etc. just as easily as raw. What I'm hating here is that this new policy or stance or whatever they want to call it is calling out JUST raw foods as dangerous. If they want to put out a public health warning, fine...

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

Misskiwi, everything in the studies you linked... pretty much proves my point. I'm not addressing nutritional deficiencies- partially because that's not what AVMA is rallying against and partially because I agree that there are LOTS of people feeding nutritionally deficient "raw diets". I'...

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

The debate, if true (I cannot find verification or discussion on the vet boards) is based in science, and it is to protect the vast majority who do NOT understand the risks. There is a lot of evidence that raw feeding is risky and NONE that says raw is better than home cooked. I'm sorry, but this i...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

A very good update today! Riddle saw the chiropractor yesterday, and I'm so glad we went! Not just her hips were out, pretty much her whole body was out of alignment. I swear the chiro fixed almost every single vertebrae! It doesn't surprise me given all the ortho stuff she's had wrong over the last...

Re: Green Eye Discharge

Small amounts of green or yellow eye gunk can be a simple eye infection. My guys get them occasionally, and I usually just treat with a little terramycin or other antibiotic ointment. If he's had his shots, an eye infection is more likely than distemper. Wouldn't hurt to get a vet check though!

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Sorry about lack of updates, there hasn't been much to update! Yesterday at her PT session Riddle got cleared for 5 minute walks daily! Yay! The PT said that she is healing really fast and well, which is what I want to hear! We are going to see a doggie chiropractor though, since the PT noticed that...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

I hope it doesn't burst! She did have a pretty big seroma last time around, it was actually a nightmare. It kept a portion of her incision open since there was so much fluid leaking out, she couldn't have the staples out for four weeks. :crybaby: Thankfully that didn't happen this time around! I do ...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Staples are OUT! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/savage_destiny/Riddle/20120703_205724.jpg It looks GREAT! I'm so happy. :) She was great for the staple removal, of course. The fluid is just a small seroma, which should reabsorb into her body over time. It could take a couple weeks, apparentl...
