How do you think he is doing at nearly 8 weeks?
He's doing great Rona You're lucky he's walking so sedately, at that point, Benny was trying to drag, twist, anything to get to stretch his legs.. in the house he was wonderful, but as soon as he got outside, he was a demon.
Alfie knows that if he doesn't behave, the dreaded Halti goes on
Just have to show it to him and he slows down unless there is a cat about
He had been limping for a few days, which worried me sick
Looking Great Rona :thumbup:
He looks really good :thumbup:
Sorry no real advice - just can't not take a look at your gorgeous boy :001_wub:
Rona hes looking really good,very steady.Well done Alfie xx
lol Benny was on a halti, bucking like a bronco Rona!
I wouldn't overly worry about an intermittant limp, Benny had one for months tbh, all kind of things caused it, from lying on the leg, twisting, or stumbling out on a walk. I was told to be wary of prolonged consistant limping.
Is alfie load bearing in the house, it took to about weel 12 - 16 before Benny even started, and for minths before he was fully sound indoors.
Alf has his foot down all the time now, just occassionally when he is standing still for any length of time does he readjust the angle.
Pacey63 will be so relieved at what you have said, because his dog Sholey isn't weight baring at all nearly 4 weeks after the op
You know I have no real idea, Rona, but he looks fantastic :thumbup:
Re a slight limp, I wouldn't worry at all either. Simba (horse) was still slightly lame 11 weeks after recovery from laminitis. Whilst he looked fine to those who didn't know what to look for he wasn't properly sound for a good while but he got there.
Are you two seeing something I'm not?
He looks skanky and old :lol:
No he does not! You didn't see my boy in winter time or when he was recovering from problems in the leg area :blushing: He has a rather nice movement does Alfie, and he's a cutie pie :thumbup:
If you fancy swapping dogs by the way, just let me know you can have mine NOW :lol:
Did Sholey have a TPLO? Get him to send me a pm and I can tell him how Benny was throughout the healing process if he likes
No, had the same as Alf.
I have been in contact with him since before it was done.
You know how it is, those first few weeks, never think they are going to get better
Why, has he been in a boggy pond, or rolled in something disgusting?
alf looks pretty much flawless to me rona you must be thrilled, hes coming along great & you are doing a great job:thumbup: & yes i am very relieved to hear its not totally uncommon to not weight bare at nearly 4 weeks, i have been worried sick all week at her slow progress, allsorts run through your mind, another op etc.
I think we all felt the same at the same stage, I know I did
sholey video by pacey63 - Photobucket heres one of sholey, shes seems to be improving over the last couple of days, its made me alot happier than the beginning of the week
Aww Sholey is gorgeous :thumbup:
Hopefully she wont be far behind Alfie soon too
Sholey looks good, she may even recover faster, being that bit lighter :thumbup:
Alfies walking better than Sam was after 8 weeks just watched it twice.Skanky and oldhe"s beautiful :thumbup:
