Hi Cassie, it definetly looks like Domino needs a little break from the rough housing. Mav develops a similar stance when he's been over worked or spent too long on the trail. A little R…

And question for you Mandy. I've kept Domino from too long of walks since he's only 7 weeks out, but how long do you usually take Mav out for? We like to take Finn to our botanical gardens for…

…from tumors, wraps, and painful bandage changes fresh in her mind. If a PT or ortho vet recommends it I would definitely make the investment for Domino since he's so young and it will let him Be More Dog
and protect against further injury.

Wow, that's much cheaper than I've been quoted.

…the companionship and limited play that she may need. I currently have 3 dogs, a 14 year old border collie mix, a 5 year old Anatolian Shepherd and Domino who is  1 year old Australian Shepherd and tripawd. My 14 year old is a great companion for Domino, but never wants to play, my 5 year old and Domino love each other, but they do get a little too rambunctious for my liking. Maybe if you were to look for a middle aged lower energy breed it may be a…

…and no kill shelters encourage you to bring your current dog to meet the new addition to ensure a perfect match. Hopefully this helps!

…PT vet recommended a carpus brace for Lexie, and I bet it would help your boy Domino. Ours came from Therapaws. Has Domino been evaluated by a PT or ortho vet yet? That would be a good place to start. I wouldn't recommend frisbee or other jumping around activities until

Crowley is pretty kewl (he looks like Karma's Bagheera kitty!) and for Domino to lay there like such a good boy? Wow, pawesome!

Thanks for sharing.

Yea, when I spoke to her on the phone last week she seemed fantastic! I also found out that Domino's surgeon Dr. Dunagin used to work with Dr.…

…less. Checking in with one every now and then is always a good idea to ensure you're doing the exercises correctly and correct any changes in Domino's stance, gait, etc.

…Cassie, that's a good question about home care. I do highly recommend doing the initial visit first to at least see what their plan will be for Domino. That price is a little high compared to what I pay but the first analysis is always higher since it takes longer for them to assess him. I would…

…for them (BTW, go LISA!) so you might want to ask for references and you can talk with current clients as well. Once you know the basics of what Domino needs you can do as much work at home as you need to in order to keep things under control financially.

…you guys so much!! Domino gets his staples out on Friday. I'm still on the fence about going to the rehab facility. Its a great place, and fairly close. But it's not cheap…

…you have access to a CCPT schedule an appointment for right after the sutures are removed at 10 to 12 days post op. At this point they will assess Domino's pain and strength levels and make a plan for rehabilitation. The first couple of weeks post op are stretching exercises and cold laser therapy if…
