Sage- Max was 115 lbs before surgery and is a little small for his breed, so we don't have to worry about added weight being a problem down the road.
Max continues to get a little better everyday and more and more confident as the days go on. We've purchased some wide steps to help him onto the bed once he's cleared for stairs, which will hopefully be this week! He is still moving pretty slow but at this point I'm starting to think that has more to do with the sedative than pain! He is doing very well!
Max you are a strong boy! Can’t wait to see you climb those steps, I’m sure you will do just great with them. And I think as time goes by you’ll start getting that spunk back, I can feel it’s just around the corner!
Cheers to you!

Oh wow, sounds like he is doing GREAT!! Sage is weening off the meds and her dosage has now been cut in half and that has made a very big difference in her peppiness, so that can absolutely be playing a role! Keep up the good work! Would love to see a photo update if you have one
