My boy is 8 and has Hemangiosarcoma that first showed up as a bone tumor in his femur head. Jody's surgery was Nov. 5th, and he's doing really, really well, I'm happy to say, as of today. He has had chronic diarrhea and loose poop that we're trying to get under control. He isn't squatting, and to balance he keeps his rear leg more to center. So... the poo hits it. It wasn't a problem before things "got runny," but now we intercept him at the door to wash his leg.

He'll often hit his front leg while peeing too.

Keeping in mind my boy is pretty weak from the cancer, do you have any tips or suggestions? He doesn't have extra energy for a lot of pilates or conditioning, but I'm sure we can do some.

Thanks so much,

Wendy

Wendy I'm glad to hear he's doing well! That's great! It does sound like he could use a visit with a canine rehab therapist to figure out where he is weak and how to fix it. Have you seen one yet? The Tripawds Foundation can pay for his first rehab visit !

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