Not to beat this poor thread to death but…I decided yesterday that Daisy just doesn’t feel good and it is more than just her knee.  Talked to the vet last night about my fears (I’m such an obsessive worry wart when it comes to Daisy anymore since the whole amputation thing) and told her I was now obsessing that she has a bone infection.  She had me run a urine sample to her today and Daisy does have an infection (UTI). crying  On my way over there after work to pick up antibiotics.  Hopefully in a few days Daisy will perk up again and we can continue on the road to recovery.

Wow, are UTI’s contagious? We seem to have a lot of Tripawds with them lately!

I’m glad that it wasn’t anything more serious though. Give your girl a hug from us. And a big kudos to you for listening to your instincts. Good job Ma!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

YAY!  Since Daisy has recovered from her UTI she has started hopping around on her own again and is even peeing and poopin’ without me using the sling.  NO MORE SLING!  YAY!  My neck (I think I now have a permanent crick in it) and back are so very thankful.

Still have a ways to go as she tires very easily but to see my girl wanting to do her normal routine is the BEST.THING.EVER. smiley

Awesome! Those darn infections just seem to like knocking a dog around when they’re already down. So glad it was something fairly straight forward.

Now, rest your tired back!

Yay, Daisy! Can’t keep a good gal down for too long. Now you just keep on drinking enough water to maintain this level.

Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!
