Ditto everyone!!  And loving looking at pictures of his handsome self!!😎  

Jak’s on a lot of good pain meds, so no worries  about wobbly legs or not being  mobile yet.  Yoi’ll see a difference  when the patch is off and out of his system.   Don’t  know how much Trazodone  he is on. but that will definitely  zonk him out.   And even the Gabapentin  can cause a sedation  effect in some dogs.  

Of course with your Vet’s guidance, after the patch is off, maybe the Trazedone  can be eliminated too, or only used intermittently.   As everyone  said though, rest and having  is pain properly  managed  are really good right now .

Jak will get more and more steady on his feet on his own timeframe.  Oh yes he will! That sparkle will be back before you know it!

Thank you all for the sweet comments and continued support, this community is amazing.  I wanted to give you guys another update:

He’s moving! I’m so proud of him. Just a few days ago I was in a bit of a panic and searching all the threads on here to get some kind of “timeline”, scared that he wasn’t making progress….then like magic, in the past few days he has been hopping around unassisted. I know he has a long way to go in rebuilding his strength but I’m so proud of this guy. Oh wait, I said that already 😛 

Tomorrow will be 10 days, so he’ll go in to see the original vet to have the stitches removed. From there, I’m planning on moving to a local VCA that is AAHA-certified.

YEESSSS! Did you hear my clapping and cheering! WHEEEE!!!! Oh my dog I just want to take him and kiss his adorable snout and smooch him all over! Thank you for this update, I’ve added it to our “Tripawd Movies Before and After Surgery” and our YouTube playlist. It’s SUPER inspawrational!

 I’m planning on moving to a local VCA that is AAHA-certified. 

This also made our day, what great news! Monday 7/22 is #AAHADay, watch Tripawds News for a special feature on Monday and Tuesday about AAHA-accredited clinics.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

GRINNING EAR TO EAR😁😁😁   ABSOLUTELY  HEAD OVER HEELS DELIGHTED TO SEE JAK UP AND MOBILE!!!!!  We knew he would get there!!  

We are all so proud of you BOTH!!!  The magic is in the great team of Jak and hooman!!😎

Thanks so much for this great video of Jak working his magic on three…and as a “mature fella” too!!😎

Give that boy lots of good massages up and down his spine and his neck area to lessen the tension in his newly used muscles.  He’ll love it…..therapeutic  for both of you!!
