Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle gets staples out tomorrow! Hooray! I'm slightly concerned, because she still has fluid in the knee, a small pocket. But the wound is closed, so it can't escape. I guess we'll see what the vet says tomorrow! She did get to go on a stroller ride last night. We went to another park, and she LOVE...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Whew! Sorry about the lack of updates! Our internet has been wonky and it seems like every time I get a chance for computer time, it goes out. Sigh. Here's her incision today: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/savage_destiny/Riddle/20120629_204514.jpg It's looking a bit red in some spots. It's ...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle is back on track! She's had two solid poops today. :) So that's a big relief! Her leg and incision continue to heal: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/savage_destiny/Riddle/20120626_081153.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/savage_destiny/Riddle/20120626_081223.jpg We had our fir...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Well, last night/this morning was a bid of a nightmare. We ended up back at the emergency vet a little after midnight. The leg had warmed up fine and was doing just peachy, but around 11 pm she had some diarrhea, with a couple drops of blood. I didn't think too much of it, but at 12 am she had more ...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

We finally took the stroller out! It was really warm and sunny after work, so even though I was exhausted, we went for a walk/ride. There's a park about 5 minutes away from us, so it's easy to get to and nice for her to sniff around in from the stroller. Just a stroller pic today, since her leg look...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Just one pic today! I was bad and forgot to tell Riddle's dad to take pics! The leg looks MUCH better, the swelling and bruising have pretty much vanished. We're pretty excited!

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

We didn't get much of an outing today. :( I set up the stroller and we went out, but halfway to the park it starting POURING. We had to turn back, since I didn't want Riddle's staples getting wet. The plastic cover zipped up kept her dry, but she can't see much or sniff anything with it closed, so i...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle is still doing well today. She is a bit more antsy though, so we may break out her stroller for an outing tomorrow. She felt good enough to stretch out on the floor though: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/savage_destiny/Riddle/20120621_154015.jpg And then she had a good roll! She was n...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle says thanks for the well wishes! She's been very good about snuggling on the couch next to me all day. Couch camping isn't my favourite thing ever, but it's the best way to keep an eye on her, so that's our routine for the next few days. :) WARNING: GRAPHIC INCISION PICS BELOW Just figured I'...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle is home! Very tired. She pooped, peed, and then collapsed into sleep. So far her leg isn't too swollen or bruised, but we'll see how the day progresses. I'll post some epics of her and her inscision later when she wakes up. She does have some diarrhea, so she'll be getting rice and yogurt for...

I forgot to add... Riddle is a six-year-old Pit Bull! And for a bonus, here's a pic of her from last week. :)

Riddle's TTA recovery thread

I've decided to try and keep a journal, here and on other dog forums, about Riddle's recovery after her TTA. I'll try and update daily with progress, pictures, routines, etc. After the initial few weeks, updates will probably be more spaced out as she gets more stable and things aren't changing dail...

Re: Joint supplements homework, please?

At the recommendation of our acupuncturist, we are trying a different supplement for Molly right now. It is formulated for humans but this company does make veterinary supplements as well for small animals (dogs/cats) and horses.

Re: High calorie, high fat diets/foods (non pit)

Try Acana, specifically the Grasslands variety. It's not much higher protein and fat than TotW, but it is more calorie dense. We've had major success with multiple dogs with the same issues as Roger when we've recommended trying the Grasslands. One of my co-workers has a GSP that he could never get ...

Re: Another dog death blamed on dog treats...

I would worry about ALL food products from China. If its not 100% made in the USA, I would beware. its a little hard to find things made in the usa, though..nowdays. Not food products. The store I work at will not carry any food, treats, or chews that are made in China, period. Sure, our stuff ends...
