Hi everyone I'm new to this forum. My name is Jamie (I'm female btw lol). And I have a 1 year old Miniature Dachshund called Minnie. She has just undergone surgery for Medial Patellar Luxation. We are 10 days post surgery and she is doing amazingly well. I, on the other hand, am so unbelievably stressed. Watching her every move making sure she doesn't run and jump etc. She has a crate and is crate trained. She spends all day in her crate whilst I'm at work at the moment due to her surgery. So I don't have the heart to put her in it all evening too. She just cries her heart out. So my instructions say to make sure she doesn't jump and that she can be in a pen or a small room. So this is what I'm doing, shutting doors so she's only in a small room at a time but she just wants to fly around like a loon so I'm having to constantly restrict her. I just wondered if anyone else has been through this and how they coped with the stress? She's coping wonderfully, it's just me that's a mess! Look forward to chatting to some of you and thank you in advance for any advice.
