Oh how we needed this fantastic news, this is great! I looooove the video of him eating ice cream, he’ll fit right in around here!
Don’t worry about embedding images right now, you have enough going on right now. Focus on helping him heal and his recovery will be over before you know it.
And yup, we look forward to seeing updates in Treatment and Recovery!

Ohhhh what a joy to see him getting around! I hope you’ll consider sharing these via YouTube so we can add them to our playlist. It’s so helpful for members to see how dogs can get around after surgery!
By the way I love that Gabbar is lean and in great shape. That will help him sooo much as he adapts to being a Tripawd, and afterward.

Successful surgery and home!
He is a rock star for hopping already! Just remember the best thing for him right now is rest- our surgeon said only short leashed potty walks for the first two weeks. He is pretty drugged and probably restless from all the meds- but able to eat ice cream.
Ice cream has magic healing properties!
You guys are off to a great start.
