    Well it's been 7 days since maxi's confinement and last night he started pawing at the gate. Think it's going to be fun and games for the next 5 or so weeks.

    We go out for lots of toilet breaks, and he looks to be walking okay, but he is still putting more weight on front paws.

    fun and games is a good idea - here's a video with suggestions for a dog recovering from surgery. I do love an update.

    Thanks for the video links Hya I will be trying those out with the boy he is very food orientated. We have been for our follow up and things are going great. He is still a little tender around the incision site, massage will fix, along with physio exercise which he did amazing well for the lady but he won't for me. Treat crazy!

    Though he he had thought all his Christmas had come at once when we got to the vets all the smells and the places to lift the leg

    Maximus has definately had a very eventful 4yrs. Im glad to see you back. And speedy recovery for max
    can you use a crate to contain his movement? that helped with pohm's surgery recovery.

    Yep Bernie he is pretty special, he don't do things by halves. Lucky he is insured, though I'm yet to see if they cover this one. I couldn't believe how quick he lost function in the space of 24hrs.

    I was able to purchase a small sized play pen that has room for his bed, standing room for water and food bowls, so he is in there majority of the time only allowed out on lead for toilet purposes, and light physio exercises. Vet recommended aprox 6 weeks like this. Letting the spinal cord have time to expand again. He has got all the neuro function back that he lost 24hrs prior to the op. Hoping to strengthen and build muscle tone slowly.


    Did you give Pohm fish oil supplement or anything else to aid his recovery?
