Hi everyone! I’m actually a member, but having some log in challenges. Anyway, I want to thank everyone here for providing such incredible information and so many great resources. I have a 5 month old puppy who was born with a birth defect called genu recurvatum, which causes the knee to be either turned backwards or, in his case, the tendons and ligaments are pulling his knee so that it bends backwards. It’s painful when its in certain positions, he drags it and it will cause spinal problems and issues on the top of his foot if we don’t amputate. I knew this was likely when I got him, and I am prepared in terms of supplies. My condo looks like a daycare because the floor is covered with foam mat puzzle pieces! I have cones, soft blankets, warm/cold packs, baby gates galore, canned food, rice, chicken broth, pumpkin.....all the things! He is a dachshund (was supposed to be mini longhair, but he’s 9.6 pounds at 5 months and has mostly short hair except for the cutest little fluffy mowhawk on the top of his head! rnSurgery is this Tuesday. I love the surgeon, I’ve been going to this clinic for 25 years and love my general practice vet, and they are open 24/7, so I know he will be in good hands. When we walk in, everyone yells, “GUS!” And proceeds to ask if they can hold him. They adore him! rnAnd yet, I’m a nervous wreck. My little baby puppy, undergoing such a big surgery....rnWithout all of you, I know I would be so much worse! So...thank you all. I’ll be back post op with lots of questions.....stay tuned 😊
