…All,

here's our story: Betty (5/6yr Pit Bull) was diagnosed with OSA in early June. Amputated front right leg June 25th. Her recovery was a breeze (compared to TPLO surgery). She adjusted to life on three legs very well. Betty's treatment plan was 4 sessions of carboplatin chemo…

…had neurology departments and she was able to be evaluated. Basically they thoughts were IF it was a slipped disc she would have a 50/50 chance of recovery after surgery. I opted to take her home and try acupuncture. I guess what I'm asking is if there is anything else I should be doing ? Or any

…at the time. 

 RELATIVELY speaking, this is a much less invasive  surgery than either of the knee surgeries he had and doesn't  require a lot of recovery time.

He was very thorough with his explanation  of what could and could not be done,  taken I to  consideration he's a tripawd with two rear leg

During the year of recovery she had lots of physical therapy including swim therapy. 

All this included lots of car rides which she hates.  So after she healed I decided to

And reme, dogs don't  count days in a calendar.  They live in the NOW, in the present.  Once recovery  is done, your sweet Bailey  will make your heart smile every day as you watch her effortlessly flow from k e glorious pain free moment  to the next😎
