We are proud to announce publication of the first Tripawds e-book! Three Legs and a Spare is a comprehensive handbook including answers to the most common questions about amputation for dogs.
This 108 page interactive PDF should be especially helpful to new members looking to save precious time spent searching the forums and blogs. More than three years in the making, Three Legs and a Spare can be read offline with a fully indexed two-page Table of Contents and hundreds of links to specific blog posts, movies, and forum topics.
We'll update this topic anytime the document is modified, and whenever we launch new informative e-books. Future editions will specifically discuss canine cancer, hospice care and other pertinent Tripawd topics. Any questions, or suggestions about how we might make these e-books better, will also be addressed here.
All feedback on the first Tripawds e-book is gladly welcomed! Here are a few comments we have received so far …
“I did download the book a little while ago and have just been pouring
through it. Wish I'd had it *before* the surgery – but it's all good… What a great book to help people deal with all this. Hopefully
I'm not going to have any friends or family in this same situation, but
if I do, I'll certainly tell them what a wonderful resource this site
is and how helpful and supportive everyone is… We saw the vet today and he said not to
worry about the 'aloofness' – said basically the same as what I just
read in the the ebook.” — Jackie
“Excellent helpful information contained there. I bought the book and it was worth it.” — jlbazzone
“I know the next two weeks will be hell, but we are prepared! Tripawd's
ebook Three Legs and a Spare was instrumental in helping us prepare for
Sean's surgery… I am so grateful for this online community!” — Sondra on Facebook
“Knowing that he was going to be changed forever just shattered me. But then I then started researching online and found Tripawds.com and downloaded their e-book. It was so helpful & comforting to read what all of these other people had gone through with their beloved dogs. I read and re-read, and looked for videos of hind leg amputees.”
