Kathy thank you for sharing your pup's story. How wonderful that your vet suggested grain-free and it WORKED! It's like anything, what works for some may not work for others and vice versa. We noticed that Wyatt Ray does get flaky fur when we put him on a grain-based kibble, so we just feed him grain-free and problem solved. (More)
Cheyenne, if you are in doubt, get an opinion from a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and also a canine rehab therapist. Seven months is a young dog, it's good to get all your information together before making such a big decision. Amputation may or may not solve the problem, in fact it may make things worse. Don't do anything until you consult w (More)
Stephanie, you made our day here at Tripawds HQ, thank you so much for posting on this bittersweet day. No doubt it was emotional for you. Your love for Neka is timeless. One year, two years, ten years, you two shared a bond that transcends the boundaries of what we call "days." I know that feeling well, as we carry the same torch for our Jerry. (More)

Now THAT is livin' a great life. And the kids at daycare? Well no doubt they were amazed! I remember when we took our Jerry back to his favorite doggy day care. We were SO nervous but he did great! More tired when it was over, but thrilled to be back in his game. We breathed such a sigh of relief. We love following Buster's journey, thank you (More)

  1. There’s a lot of what seems like very helpful advice but this seems to conflict with what I’ve read elsewhere, including on this website: initially your dog’s activity should be very limited. We’re day two after surgery and I hope I’m doing right by my girl by limiting her movement. If she was left to her own devices she would be doing everything she usually does. It’s tough limiting her but I suspect the right thing because the little she’s done (she’s fast and sneaky) seems to have caused her skin to become saggy. I think ultimately it will be fine but it’s not the ideal recovery.

    • Best wishes for your pup! Please point us to any information you feel may be contradictory. Confinement and moderated actic=vity are definitely key to a quick complete recovery. Then, focus on rehab exercises and conditioning before slowly work up to longer walks. FYI: Walks do not build strength, only stamina. Consider downloading Loving Life on Three legs, or better yet – consult with a certified canine rehab therapist for a professional evaluation and specific exercises to help your dog (once completely healed). Visit a CCRT or CCRP and the Tripawds Foundation can even pay for your first visit! Start here for help finding the many Tripawds Resources an assistance programs.

  2. Sameer, my buddy Gregor and I are in the same predicament. Did you ever get a second opinion or find out?
