Welcome home, Jack!

I think it is great you took Jack to 24-hour care place! They are better equipped then we can be at home, and they can keep them more comfortable and monitored especially the first night! Hope the low platelets resolved too!

Appetite is normal to be down in recovery, just coax him to eat. Wet food is great. You can warm it to stimulate his senses. We used stinky fish foods which worked for us. The stinkier, the better it seemed. Just as long as he eats, doesn’t have to be his usual amount.

Fantastic he hopped in the box already WHOO HOO way to go Jack!
He is going to do great as a Tripawd just you wait and see.

Keep healing Jack rest is best!
Hugs, Holly & Purrkinsheart

Jack’s probably thinking the recovery stuff is not a bad thing at all!  He gets comy bedding with a cozy hot water bottle, he gets ro “camp out” without faciq bad weather and mosquitoes,and he gets ro try every tasty food in the land!

Jack is such a good camera subject.  He’s absolutely adoravle!!

Keep the good updates coming!   Sloooow and easy Jack.  You still jave some recovering to do sweet boy!

Hugs

Yes! We were trying to think of a way to contain him. Someone said a pack-n-play, so I was asking around for one of those. And a friend mentioned they had used a pop-up-tent when their pup had surgery. We have one of those, and we have the space. It’s worked out great! 

Got bandages off today!!
