So brushette went into surgery really late last night to have her leg repaired from the torn ligament. We finally got a call at 11PM that they were finishing up, and that they'd made the necessary repairs. She's recovering now, and will probably be able to be picked up this afternoon.

Thereupon, we'll have to keep her kenneled for eight weeks, including the Carnivore's Feast. This will not sit well with the beagle, let me tell you! I can already hear her complaints, and she's not even home yet!

We must persevere lest this expensive surgical procedure be a failure. We cannot allow her majesty to break down our resolve.

Oh, boy...

One hurdle down . . .

. . . uh, that might be a bad choice of metaphor.


Good luck.

Ever the optomist, eh, Jamie?

wow... 8 weeks is a long time. Perhaps a cadre of helium balloons and a doggie-sling, so she can float about the house? :)

Too much chance that she'll float over to the food stocks, and once eaten, she'll be too heavy to float, landing on the injured leg. Not now, I'm afraid.

The two of you and Brushette all have my sympathy, I have no idea how you'd keep a dog kenneled for *that* long!
Was this a CCL problem? Both my oldsters had that but by the time anyone offered surgery as an option, they were both too old for the anesthesia.

...hmm. Would something like S3 granules or Duralactin help?
(I have a lot left-over as I'd replenished just before Cassie's demise.)

I think forestcats said it was an ACL, but I don't recall at the moment. My knowledge of canine anatomy is minimal, as I have another species' structures filling up my brain.

My knowledge of computer anatomy is extensive but I don't work on living beings... :-)

When you say kenneled do you mean confined? or in a largish dog run?
A place where she can't jump, I am assuming.
Good luck and healing thoughts for the pup.

Confined. She can't jump and must rest to allow the joint to heal.

And no peas under her pillow.

Confined. Maybe with some Pit Bull named Bubba...

You know she'd have him wrapped around her finger in no time.

Now, there's a good idea. I'll put one in the kennel with her momentarily.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
