Halo's Surgery
« on: December 30, 2005, 11:20:28 am »
He will be going Tuesday for his Luxated Patella. Wish us luck please? Then it's 3 months of leash only walking and seperation from Penny and Brindle. He cries now if he's not near them, so some sleepless nights are coming. Lol.

Oh my gosh!  Could Halo be any cuter?
Will Halo stay in a crate? I mean...will he stay calm?  Maybe he could still be near Penny and Brindle that way?
Best of luch Halo!!

Thank you all for the good vibes. His hips will be XRayed and getting the surgery depends on that. If he has displasia in the hips then we won't be operating. thanks for your kind thoughts.

Fingers and paws crossed here for Halo. Hope it's something that will rectify itself like Panosteitis and he doesn't need any surgery.

thanks. Halo has a crate but when the others are in the room , he wants out. He's gonna have to adjust I guess.

Poor Halo! Please give him extra kisses and hugs for us! I hope that he heals soon so that he can play with his best buds again!  :)
Hugs,

Thank you. It's going to depend on his hip X Rays what we will do. Also, his elbows are getting X Rayed too. If he has bad dysplasia we will have to think about other options. As it is theres 3 tough months of recovery for the one knee and the other will need it next year. Money is also an issue unfortunatly. Each knee is $2600 and each hip $6000. Really can't put 18 K into the dog just to have him in pain half his life. But, I'm guardadly optimistic right now. He knows something up. He wants to be apart from Penny and Brindle for now.
