Sugar Bear - TPLO Surgery update
« on: April 23, 2009, 08:02:21 am »
Hey guy,  Well me have made it 7 weeks since Sugar Bear's TPLO Surgery. He is doing much better than I ever dreamed he would.  We go in next week for x-rays to check the status of the bone.

This is Sugar Bear with his funny hair cut.  I will try and down size some photos of the other to post today.

The hood is the WORST part.  That hair sure takes forever to grow back.  Glad it's all going well.  why do you still have to wear the hood, Sugar Bear?

He is out of the cone now, and is soooooooooooo happy about that.  For now he is still on only potty walks but after next week we should get the ok to start short walks. That will go on for another 4-6 weeks before I can let him back in with the others.  I do have Izzy spending time with him in his room but one of them has to be in a crate.  I am calling the dog room recovery as Izzy had to have a couple of staples put in her ear from a fight with Dixie.  Long story but she is fine and gets the staples out on Monday. I tell you what there is something all the time with a five pyrs. But hey I love it and would not have it any other way.

I haven't been keeping up with BPO the way I should so I missed that Sugar Bear had TPLO surgery.  I'm so glad that he is getting better and that he is out of the dreaded cone.

Thanks guys, he is doing even better now. Yesterday he had an off leash walk in the yard with my other fun-kids. He had the time of his life, I did have to slow down the play a few times but after that they all had a long nap in the same room.  It sure is great to have the "kids" back together.

I bet being back with his buds makes him feel even better!!  Good to hear he's doing well.
