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...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

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: Strollers for big dogs?

Timas Mom, thanks for the offer! But I think it looks a little small for what I want. Shanda, I thought of you and Ruadh's stroller. I was hoping you would post. Did you ever take his stroller on any trails or rougher terrain? How did it work out? I think I've narrowed it down to the DoggyRide and o...

Re: Strollers for big dogs?

Thanks for the links! Even with sides, there's no way to really make sure she couldn't bail out of a wagon. I really doubt she would try to bail, but when it comes to post knee surgery, I do not want to take any chances of her trying to get out of a wagon or cart and going nuts, blowing the nearly f...

Re: Strollers for big dogs?

Enigma, I like the look of that one. Do you know the brand or manufacturer? Modifying something will not work for me. lol I am not handy at all, and so I need something pre-made and ready to go. I do think that sooner or later Riddle will really need something like this a lot, so I'm willing to pay ...

Re: Strollers for big dogs?

I thought about a wagon, but I'd feel more comfortable with something she couldn't just leap out of. Normally she's really good, but if she saw a squirrel or something I think she could bail. Which would not be good.
