Go Max!

Don't let the cough freak you out, there are so many non-urgent reasons for that kind of thing. Glad you are having it checked out though. It will put your mind at ease. Let us know how it goes.

The vet thinks the cough is from the tube down his throat. He’s been on cough medicine/throat soothing medicine for 24 hours and he hasn’t coughed!

My grandpa had to come check on him today while I was in class because I saw on the camera Max had gotten tangled up in his big blanket… Shouldn’t have left that in his cage. So he will only get 1 baby blanket from now on. Thank goodness for cameras! 

I scheduled his appointment for getting his stitches out- next Tuesday! I’m so ready and excited for Max to get them out. I know he is ready! 

Thank you guys for the tips! You guys rock!

YAY....cough is better and cause is determined!

When I quickly glanced back to see when Max had his amp, I mistakenly thought it was June 24th...your first post.  Had I paid better attention  it would have made perfect sense that his throat was irritated from the intubation as this was still close to the actual surgery.  My bad!!

Give your Grand Pa a hug from us  for being such a good Grand Dog to Max!  Glad he got him out of that "big blanket monster"!🤣

no it’s fine! we just knew then that he would need it amputated. i’m glad we know what the cause is now! it’s confusing- even to me!

Yes- my grandpa came to the rescue!! he loves Max so much. He’d do anything for Max!

Yes! Max is doing a lot better. Counting down the days until he can get his stitches out. Hopefully he’ll start getting back to normal after they’re out!

Went to the vet for a checkup!

Max is doing very well! He can now come out of his cage a lot more, but he will still be sedated until he can get his stitches out.

He has to keep his stitches in for another week unfortunately. We will all be glad when he can get the stitches out!!

it also makes me feel good that 3 doctors said that he needed amputation due to his injury.

I just always worry i’m not doing the best thing for my baby- but the doctor said that it was the only other thing we could do besides fuse the bones in the leg together to create an elbow. So i’m glad I chose this in the end
