Beau's 1st Post -op Appointment


Recommended Posts

Beau went for his 1st post op appointment since his surgery last Thursday and I am thrilled and relieved to say that he is doing well.

Once again the doc made a point of saying that he has never in 31 years seen a greyhound do this kind of damage (remove the tendon and ligament away from the bone) and we have to TRY TO KEEP HIM FROM BEING A BOZO!

With the cast on, he is not too concerned, it's after he the cast comes off that he is concerned about.

We will cope with it one day at a time.

 

We hired a nanny who loves the pups to stay with them while Beau is re-couperating. We need to make sure that Beau doesn't jump onto anything and that Teddy doesn't accidently knock him over. She did GREYT today and all the pups loved her. Beau actually roo'd when they met yesterday (1st time since he got hurt). It was his way of saying thanks for the pretty, young, loving girl who is watching me, Mom!!! I LIKE HER!

 

YAY Beau!

YAY Beau indeed!!

 

Thank you for posting this progress report - please continue.

 

It was probably in your original post - how long will Beau need the cast?

 

Doc said the cast looked excellent (there is a bootie over it). That was a tough feat yesterday, keeping it dry and clean with that nasty massive rain storm we had! The cast will prob be on for another 2 weeks, maybe 3. So total 3-4 weeks.

It's after the cast comes off, we have to remain extremely careful.

When DS broke his wrist we got a kevlar sleeve from the orthopedist that tightens at the top with a velcro-ed belt. Can you use one of these on the cast? the orthopods have them for human arms and legs, maybe one could fit with some tweaking.

Glad he is doing well.

So glad to hear that beautiful Beau is feeling better and is on the mend. I know how awful it is to have one of your

babies in a cast. Our kitty, Marley, broke her leg a year and a half ago and needed plates and pins inserted to mend it.

She had to stay in an empty room (with just a mattress on the floor) for 12 weeks so she wouldn't jump up on anything.

My DH and I would take turns going upstairs to spend time with her and comfort her. I also had another kitty who was

dying from a vaccine-induced fibrosarcoma at that time. Those were some of the worst months of our lives, but her leg

is perfect now and I'm sure you and Beau will get through this together. Take this time to spoil him rotten.

I don't know about you, but trying to keep a greyhound quiet when they don't want to is like trying to nail jello to a tree.

 

They may be couch potatoes but when they wanna play, lookout!

 

Exactly, that's why it's going to be a LOOOOOOONG time before Beau is off leash in our yard or the Pocono house.
