Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for all the words of encouragement and advice. Tomorrow will be one week since Archer came home! 

Over the past week we have babied him and  treasured every milestone. Who knew hearing a bark or watching him sit up on his own would be the highlights of our days. Today he figured out how to stand on his own and took his first steps, and obviously we shared it proudly with all our our friends and family. 

We go see the doctor tomorrow and I’m feeing anxious. Crush paw has been in the back of my mind. The doctor stated that it may or may not be an issue and so far it looks like things are healing nicely but I’m not a orthopedic specialist, so what do I know.  Everyday he is  making progress towards recovery and the last thing we want is for him to be in pain or have limited mobility. I have a long list of questions for the specialist tomorrow. But in the meantime, Has anyone else had any experience with crush paw?how did you treat it, what was the outcome?

Awww…So glad you are starting to be able to celebrate little improvements…which are HUGE improvements in this journey! 🙂 🙂

Have not had experience with the paw scenario. Try not to jump ahead though. Just know that Archer has already handled the most important part of this journey..HE SURVIVED!! Whatever hurdles may come your way, you and Archer will figure out how to get through them together!

So we have some things to celebrate!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

YAY FOR SITTING UP!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 YAY FOR STANDING UP!!! 🙂 🙂 YAY FOR TAKING FIRST STEPS!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

YAAAAAAAAAY FOR ARCHER!!!! 🙂 🙂 AND YAAAAAAAAAY FOR YOU!!:-)

Hugs!

Thanks Sally, 

You’re right, need to be able to focus on the positive and deal with stuff when it has to be dealt with. 

Archer is doing great. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks post amputation. He’s hopping around on his own and refuses to sit in the floor. We spoiled him the first few days by letting him on the sofa, now he demands sofa privileges, and how can we say no. 

So, the weirdest thing is happening with our other dog, Addy. Archer and her were bonded before the car accident. She’s a puppy mill puppy and has always been skiddish. So Archer came home and she refuses to go anywhere near him. We’ve tried treats to reintroduced, and sitting then in opposite sides, rubbing blankets on each other. Archer wants to cuddle with her but she refuses to go near him.

Anyone have any similar experiences? How long did it last? And did your dogs go back to normal? 

thanks everyone. 

Kat.

I’m happy to hear Archer has done so well. He came home from the vet with funny smells so Addy may have reacted to that. I know this happens with some cats and some people use Feliway which is a pheromone and comforts cats. I had no issue with my cats as my male became very protective of Mona when she was recovering from the amputation. Although she still bonks him on the head and won’t cuddle with him, she now is protective and comforts him at the vet. Their relationship changed after the amputation.

There is a dog appeasing pheromone product that may be useful for Addy. Perhaps ask your vet about it or do some research.

I’m sure others will respond.

Hugs to you and your furry family,

Kerren and Tripawd Kitty Mona
