Sweet girl is day 1 of recovery and doing well although she looks terribly sad but as someone mentioned she is dopey from the meds, so I'll go with that lol. Not sure how to add an image.

YAY! I'm glad you can see that she is on the mend. I know it looks really pathetic sometimes when they are so wonky. Try to remember it's good medicine for her to be mellow and lazier than normal. Your attitude is perfect!

This is how adding images to the Forums works.

  • Upload pics to a photo sharing site like imgur.com or your own Tripawds blog (https://tripawd...../supporter). Pictures and video have to be hosted (live) somewhere other than in the forums.
  • Once the photo is uploaded somewhere, right click and copy the Image URL or just copy the image if you’re on a phone
  • Return to your Tripawds Forum post and paste the image URL (or the image itself) in your post. It should automatically appear. 

If you’d like help figuring out the process let me know, I'm happy to help!

Lets try this, picked her yesterday afternoon after 2 days recovery in hospital. Came home, ate a little, drank alot, took meds, snoozed and then ate alot and on her own out of bowl (first time in 3 weeks). Great start to her recovery.

Snoozing away ON the incision this morning. They said that was a good sign in regards to pain management .

She is beautiful! Glad she's eating again now that the pesky leg is outta the way 🙂 You guys are doing great - it may be an emotional few weeks as you begin to adjust, but she sounds like she's in great hands.

Awww what a beautiful reunion! I wish I had thought of getting our reunion with Jerry on video, it's such an emotional and touching day.

She looks so so good. And it's an especially good sign that she is on the incision side too. Great start indeed!

P.S. would it be OK if I put the videos on our YouTube channel? So many people want to know their dog (especially big ones) will actually hop out of the hospital on their own.

Yes most certainly, we found it difficult to find Saint Bernard's in general with amputation, especially front limb and know every bit someone can research and see a Saint Bernard or another giant breed is so helpful, thanks.

Aww it's good to see you and Maisie! She looks like she's getting around really, really well.

I'm glad that she's not chasing the Chuck-it ball, smart girl! That's one kind of explosive activity you really want to avoid with a Tripawd to keep that wrist (carpus) strong.

OMD! She is soing so well!  Love being able to see the comparison  when she hopped put of the clinic compared to the four week comparison.  Wonderful way to let newbies see what's possible for bigger dogs.....and it still gets vetter and better!

There is another St that comes to mind named Sailor. Additionally  another magnificent named Thurston.   I think they posted mostly in a blog so not sure of I can find them, but they really showed that larger dogs can live life to the fullest on three..just like  Maisie!!
