…feel better.  I am such a worry wart and I automatically start obsessing about the worst case scenario.  I am hoping the cold laser works to speed recovery.

And yes we saw the blog post about your trip thru Missouri.  Love the pic with Daisy giving Wyatt the "eye".  Looks like she was making sure he

…to hear Daisy is out of surgery and on the road to recovery.  I hope she has an uneventful recovery.  Please keep updating on her progress!

…to the group no one ever WANTS to join.  Poor Daisy has a lot going on with those legs!  I know you are concerned about the hind leg because of the surgery, but a front amputee really puts the…

…majority of the stress on the one remaining front leg.

Sending good thoughts for a speedy recovery.

…. It also contained writings about other favorite dogs that were being grieved for.... like Chili because he looked so much like Bud, Daisy who happily sported her wheel chair
and Gayle who was so pretty and made a special ornament for us. 

I think it helped her understand that our…

…each other (strangers or friends) and sharing those stories make both joy and sorrow better. HUGE concept if you ask me.

I hope the surgery and recovery go well. I'll be sending healing thoughts to all of you.

…Darren & Buddy.  So sorry to hear about your accident.  Wishing a speedy recovery for you.  Daisy and Shadow's good friend and neighbor, Layla, is a catahoula.  I had never heard of them before I met her.  They are great dogs.  I can picture

…to Holly ! I watched as our senior Dalmatian Daisy ran out in the road and get about guilt! My best advice to you is to TRY to put those feelings aside and deal with the present…

…leg but the 1st surgery didnt take and we ended up putting her through an additional operation 2 weeks later. Double the cost and lengthening the recovery time . Each dog and situation is different. Ask your vets about financing (I used care credit-it was int free for 24 months) Does Utah State

…m sorry to hear that Abner is having a tough time right now.  I'm with Cadence's mom on this one.  We have no experience w/chemo as Daisy lost her leg to arthritis.  However, her first two weeks of recovery were pretty much uneventful.  It wasn't until her third week that she became…

…hotdogs and drink a little water.  Maybe it is all just now catching up with him.

Good luck and I hope Abner is feeling better soon!

…luck with the surgery today and the recovery.  Keep us posted on how it's going.

Marla and Daisy

…Mandi and Daisy! Hugs and wishes for a Speedy Recovery heading your way!

Daisy and Mandi! What a darling little girl! More pics please!

all the best for her recovery.


Meg and Gandalf

…to Tripawds Mandi and Daisy. Sorry you HAD to find us, but you will be glad you did! I hope Daisy continues to heal well and adapt to her new normal.

The drugs do mess with them, and they really are not themselves the first couple days after…

…surgery. She sounds like she is doing well already though, eating and potty!

Keep us posted on her recovery, and a couple of pictures would be great!

…and thanks for joining, your future forum posts will not require moderation.

Best wishes for Daisy's speedy recovery!

…Cookie and Pack!  Daisy had a post op "funk".  I believe it was just her body trying to heal.  She slept ALOT and I couldn't hardly get her off the couch to go out and do…

…was her Deramaxx which she was already taking for her arthritis.  I had tramadol on hand just in case but didn't feel she really needed it.  Your recovery sounds pretty normal so far.

Good luck!

Marla and Daisy

…for the late post- I hope Sadie continues in her recovery. We had a Dal, Daisy that was also hit and suffered a classic degloving of the hind leg. Looking forward to hearing more about Sadie!

…t answer that as Daisy just likes to wade in to cool her paws.  I sure wish she would swim!  I have read about other tripawds on here that are able to swim.  Hope Boo's recovery is still going well.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

…vet sent Daisy home in a pressure bandage.  She's a front amp, too.  They said it would help with swelling and help prevent seromas from developing.  They had me…

…was hardly any swelling or bruising.  After that I didn't put anything on her.  I didn't need to use a cone of shame
or t-shirt.  I was lucky as Daisy didn't seem interested in her incision at all.

What a kind and generous soul you are to save him like that.  Best of luck with your recovery!

…what a sweet face!  I'm sorry you're having a time of it trying to figure out your balance.  Daisy is a front amp.  Hopefully Emma is just loopy from the pain meds.  She is still in the very early stages of recovery from major surgery.


…and paws crossed that Emma is up and about on her own in no time!  Keep us updated.

…glad everything went well with GiGi.  It's scary when they are in there.  Daisy was sent home with a compression bandage.  It really helped with keeping the swelling down and they are supposed to help prevent seromas.  We were…

…lucky and didn't have much swelling or bruising.  All surgeons do things a little different I guess.

Here's hoping for an uneventful recovery!

…to you and Daisy. We've always only had 1 dog at a time, but Abby was VERY standoffish during her recovery. I'm wondering if it's just the same thing with Daisy. Abby was always my shadow - but post-amp, she didnt' want anything to do with my husband

…pain that aren't narcotic.  Maybe you could talk to your vet about that tomorrow?

Great news that it isn't OSA.  That's what my vet thought Daisy had too.  She had the characteristic lesion show on xrays.  Turns out the lesion was severe bone destruction around her elbow joint with some brown…

…granular growth in there.

Good luck with the recovery!

…s surgery went well and she's back home with you.  Stairs is the only way into my house, too.  Doesn't matter which door, they all have stairs.  Daisy did just fine when she came home the day after her surgery.  I took someone with me because I thought I was going to have to carry her (I didn't…

…legs.  I think maybe it's because she had basically quit using her leg anyway because of the pain so she adapted quickly.

Best of luck with the recovery!
