Hello,  my 10 yo 85# coonhound had his front limb amputated due to elbow synovial sarcoma 5 1/2 weeks ago.  He had acute kidney failure after surgery which he is recovering from. My question is that he is getting around pretty well, but when he stops moving outside his hind legs shake/shiver.  He doesn’t seem painful and I don’t notice it inside.  He is going further every day but the shaking makes me worry. Any advice?

Here and Now

This may be the problem. FYI: Walks do not build strength, only stamina. It is still early in your pup’s rehabilitation. What’s his name?

There are various starter exercises you can do to help him regain strength. But the best recommendation is to consult with a certified rehab vet/tech for an orthopedic evaluation, treatment recommendations and strengthening exercises you can do at home. Visit a CCRT or CCCRP and the Tripawds Foundation can even pay for your first visit from the Maggie Moo Fund for Tripawd Rehab!
