…back to their normal... But they do. 

Proper litter boxes are important. Keeping them confined to small areas or a room that is safe during recovery is important too. 

Be ready for the caregiver to spend lots of time medicating for pain, feeding, and keeping them comfy. I always say get your

…!

I hope your sweet Silas has had a perkier recovery since the first post.  My Daphne is about 9 years old and we went through left forelimb amputation this past May.  She had excruciating phantom

…before the surgery because I read that it may help prevent phantom limb pain this way.  She has had no evidence of ongoing pain after the initial recovery period.  We both slept in a spare room with a twin mattress on the floor for 2 weeks after her surgery.  I had made a little "cave" bed for Samba

Every kitty is different in recovery Purrkins did have to relearn his life on three since his was his front leg. Purrkins was using his leg right up until his surgery. It was a big

In the meantime getting her to eat small amounts, drink…

…and see if you can ease her. Soft music might help too... Laugh at me but Alexa and i got to be pretty decent friends throughout Huckleberry's recovery. I played music for him a lot. Just soft soothing music.

You got this! The first night while they are recovering from anthesia can be really

…wonder about your vet's suggestion of a 20 min leash walk at this point, however. I would've NEVER considered this with Nitro at this early stage of recovery. I think I took him on a short walk (I use this term lightly, because Tripawds don't really walk anymore, they hop, and in Nitro's case, it was a…

… but try to take it slow and not rush things. He will progress when he's ready.

Also, I'd never heard that about Dobe's having the most difficult recovery...interesting. The first 2 weeks were ruff for us, but then he came into his own, and rocked life on 3! Good luck, keep us posted. Remember you
