…ve noticed - the episodes of what we thought were phantom limb pain have stopped entirely, or at least they have so far. By this point in his last recovery he'd already had several, that was one of the first things we worriedly called the vet about. The only angry growly moment he had was vaguely my

…take a look at the best (and worst) pet amputation pain drugs for dogs and cats.

All new amputee pets will probably feel some discomfort during recovery. Even with the best pet amputation pain drugs, some soreness and inflammation can happen.  But how much discomfort a patient experiences…

…depends on the pain control they received from your veterinarian. 

Our goal is to help your new Tripawd be as comfortable as possible during recovery. The following article can help.

Amputation pain management
is a delicate balance that takes a team approach between the pet parent and the veterinarian. For the easiest recovery possible, talk to your vet before surgery to find out what your pet will come home with after amputation and how pain will be addressed.

We can all share our stories of recovery, from the brilliant to the ugly but Pittens is going to do this her way. I can honestly say that before I met some of the beautiful people here, I

…beef,  rotisserie chicken might be good to have on hand. Low sodium bouillon is good if he's not drinking enough. 

If you have a safe area for recovery that would be good.  He will need tons of sleep,  food,  hydration,  short walks to potty only(on leash or other support) ... repeat.  No

…the diagnosis of Fibrosarcoma.  Her left hind leg was amputated on May 11.  I decided to start this thread because I have some questions on her recovery and am hoping for some insight from those of you who have been through this.

Hang in there and stay connected.   This is one reason we call recovery  a roller coaster.  It's full of ups and downs the first week or so.

…and get his appetite back while we waited for vet appointments.  Fortunately, it worked amazingly and helped him push through the final few weeks of recovery.  

Well, that was almost six months ago now, and I can very happily say that Bogart is fully recovered and has adjusted to the tripawd life…

… but having been here for a couple of years I can say with total confidence that many dogs here, young and older, small and large, do very well after recovery. You have had some wonderful input from fantastic people so I am just welcoming you and wishing you well on your journey.

Please stay tuned in,…
