Darlings home!

Post by Hayley on Fri Oct 10, 2014 6:24 pm

First topic message reminder :

She was doing very well today and they decided she was ready to come home. Her hip is doing really well so the sling is off and she is now just on strict rest, anti-b and pain killers. I've not seen her stand up herself yet, only the front end. But i have a very soft pillow in the crate so might be too unstable for her? It was nice vet who was in and she was just gushing about Lexi, she said she'd really bonded with her and she was the best patient happy She was telling me how she would go in and sit with her in the kennels if it was quiet to see if she could get her to eat, and she finally did. I'm so happy that she was there, so i'm gonna send her a card in a bit when Lexi is feeling a bit stronger.

She is currently lying sleeping after her dinner, half a can that took 10 mins to eat, but has drank too so i'm happy happy shes just very sorry for herself.

Still no poo, day 6 tomorrow. Hope its nice weather so she can sit outside for a bit again see if it helps. I enjoyed sitting watching the world go by with her snuggled beside me.

Told dad it was karma that she got hit because he wouldn't let her in the house when it was cold, so karma decided to do this so she HAD to come in. He said "it definitely was the kar part anyway" lmao. If you didn't laugh you'd cry... laughing

Has your vet recommended anything? Maybe some good ol' canned pumpkin will help her get going.

Oh dear... laughing

Hayley, tell dad, thank you, tell mum to be quiet. I would certainly worry after 6 days. Have you asked the vets opinion?

She probably feels secure in the crate. A safe plave to rest & recoup. Keep on trucking babe.... she will get there! hug

Not great today. Have gave her some oil to see if it lives her butt a bit lol but she's verrrrry weak behind and the leg is sitting weird, like pointing out rather than forward. I'm pretty sure the hips not out again cause she can stand on it just needs stood up and leg placed, it's like she can't control that leg. I don't want to make her use it cause it's hurt but I think it's almost like a dead leg cause it's not being used??? She's like a balloon ready to pop sad

Think I'll be off to the vets again tomorrow.

Oh, that does not sound good.... the vet sounds like a smart move, thats probably the best thing to do. Maybe a towel under her hips that you hold ea end of will help support her if she needs to go to the loo.

I find apple good if mine cant go. But I dont know if she eats this?

Thanks. She walked ever so slightly better just now but still nowhere near how well she was yesterday but I really think she has just been lying on it all night. She's now on her soft pillow again and just have to put so puppy pads over it and wash and dry it when she pees. It dries pretty fast anyway and mums ok today she even made baby noises at her.

Poor Lexi crying

If she still hasn't pooed by tomorrow then a trip to the vet would be an idea. The fact that she has bowel sounds is good though.

I was thinking that maybe too Caroline. Surely if she has a sore tummy and butt it will be uncomfortable to walk. Just its how the leg is, its just there..shes not symmetrical. But when she is standing she unbalances she can put it over and stop herself falling, so im still sure its not out. More bills crying wish it was at least near the end of the month!

hug Maybe she's just favouring it because it's sore? Or, when the hip was knocked out of joint, maybe the soft tissues surrounding the joint were pulled as well? I think it can take a little while for everything to heal up after a dislocation.

That is very true. My knee (including patella) was deliberately dislocated during my knee replacement op 7 months ago, and it took ages and lots of physio before I could walk properly again.

Oh, and if Lexi was given pain-killers that include morphine - apparently that is very constipating.

Maybe she over did it yesterday and the constipation and pain is just too much to contend with. The leg just looks withered if you get me?

Does your vet charge for phone consultations? You could try asking her what she thinks! happy

It's bitch vet in the morning. They don't charge but she's probably just say throw her into a river :p

I'll be phoning ahead anyway, I don't want to stress her in the car for nothin. If I can just pick up something to give her then it will save her the stress.
