Lacey's Stitches Come Out

by sands904 on 12/16/2007 at 2:45 PM in Lacey

Well, it has been a little over a week since Lacey's operation and she is doing great. She is starting to put a little weight on her leg  when she walks. We have been letting her walk around the house on a leash so that we can restrict her activity, but still let her get some exercise.

Yesterday, we took her into the vet and had her stitches taken out. The vet said her incision was healing nicely and that everything looked good.  That was a relief to hear. Now, that the stitches are out is is just a matter of waiting. We have to take it slow and let her rest and limit her activity for another 10 and a half weeks. She is starting to want to be a little more active, so I am guessing that it is going to get harder to keep her inactive as she starts feeling better. 12 weeks is a long time. It will be the end of February before she is suppossed to be back to her normal activity level.

Oh well, we will do what we have to to ensure a safe and healthy recovery.

Lacey's Homecoming

by sands904 on 12/7/2007 at 10:19 PM in Lacey

Lacey is Home!

We went to pick up Lacey last night around 5:30pm. The vet technician brought her out to us with one of those plastic cones on her head. She didn't look too happy to have that on but her tail was wagging so that was nice to see. The lady told us about how to give her the medicine and that we had to keep her still for at least 4 weeks and then limited activity after that. She is not suppossed to go up or down stairs for at least 6 weeks and no running, jumping or playing for at least 12 weeks. We will keep her inactive for the 12 weeks like we were told to. I just hope after that she is ready to run and play like she did before this surgery. I want my happy bouncy little girl back.

She has stitches that run the entire length of her back left leg. Poor little girl. She can move around a bit, but she is very unsteady as she cannot yet put any weight on that leg. We have pain medication to give her for a couple of days and some other liquid medicine to help reduce the bruising and swelling. She is eating fine which is good because they said she may have a reduce appiteite for a few days. Overall she is doing well. Right now she is sleeping in my lap which is very good for her.
