Whoa!! Has it really been two weeks already?! Chloe’s stitches are out! Woof woof!
She has perked up considerably in the last few days. She RAN to the car this morning when we were on our way to the vet to have her stitches removed. Video here. She was so excited at the vet, greeting everyone with wiggles and kisses. So nice to see her back to normal.
We are still weaning off of the Gabapentin. She’s still taking 2 Tramadol every 8 hours but I think we can dial that back as well, and she’s got 2 days left with 1/2 Rimadyl 2x daily. She has a few scabs on her incision, that we expect to heal and fall off in their own time. She still occasionally yelps if something bumps her amp site – normally it’s just Jenson’s butt bumping into her. We are just back to living life as a dog!
No additional follow ups are scheduled with the vet – obviously we can call as needed. I am now in the research rehab phase of things – so I plan to spend some time on the Tripawds forum and blog posts about exercising and strengthening your Tripawd. Our harness is on it’s way – can’t wait to get that!
