Re: APBTs and ACL Tears

The surgeon I saw yesterday had to convince me that JDs cruciate tear was nothing I could have prevented...I thought, knowing his limitations, I should have been limiting his excercise more...but she said if he was going to rupture it, he was going to rupture it no matter what I had done. She feels ...

Re: Thermometer usage question

So glad she's doing better...you may need to be my emotional support after next wed...JD goes in for surgery, we decided on the tightrope surgery...it's not as invasive as the TPLO, but more stable than the tieback...

Re: JD went lame today :(

The way I see it is, either way I need to talk to the surgeon :( If it's a cruciate then it will need to be repaired...if it's his hip...and it's getting bad enough for him to stop walking on it, it may need to be fixed :(

JD went lame today :(

Jd is completely non weight bearing on his right hind leg...we were outside playing and he just came back to me limping...now he isn't using it at all...he will let me touch it so I don't think anything is broken, and part of me is hoping his hip is just acting up, because I really hope it's not a c...

Re: Maggie's "fuzzy" patch

Well if Maggie is thinner I suppose the patch could look bigger if it is underlying scar tissue. Otherwise I'd probably be thinking whatever is under that fur is growing. But I'm no expert. acctually, she's fatter. much fatter. she's had 2 knee surgeries in the last 2 years, and she's having anothe...

Re: Maggie's "fuzzy" patch

I would probably have the vet shave it and look at it again...I don't think that is normal...it may be nothing but I think it warrants someone looking into it

Re: Thermometer usage question

I'm glad I could help set your mind at ease :) She's pretty much covered with the antibiotics, i've only ever seen them send home cephalexin, so I wouldn't worry so much...though I know how I am and I would probably be freaking out a bit too lol

Re: Thermometer usage question

TPLO's can be tempramental, once false move and they go lame again...is she completely non weight bearing? As long as the screws and plate are still in place she should be in good shape :) Keep an eye on her and keep her calm and rested :) Good luck! Hope she feels better soon...I used to work for 2...

Re: Thermometer usage question

I usually do about an inch or so, and make sure it's against the wall of the rectum, otherwise the reading may be lower than it really is
