Post Surgery Update.

I got Coco Bean home last night. she had one of those cone collars on which i think are so mean, so i put the donut collar on her which does the same thing but does not obstruct her view or mobility.
She is really out-of-it and wants to sleep a lot so i make her conferabl. here is a photo of her right after i took the collar off
Here is a photo of her boobooI have her her medicine this morning which is the antibiotic mixed with the pain meds into a liquid form. the horrible taste of the pain meds made her foam at the mouth. had to take a photo of her foaming at the mouth. it was upsetting to me to give her something that made her more uncomfortable but somehow i was able to get .6 ml into her instead of the .7 the vet wanted me to give her.I called the vet and he is making up a different elixir of her pain meds and antibiotic separately to that we don't have this problem anymore.

Coco Bean is standing but is wobbly and refuses to even attempt to put her back left leg down which is totally understandable (i wouldn't either if i were her). She is still staying in her doggy playpen and i heard her get up late last night to eat doggy food, and then again at around 4:00am and she went peepee then got back into her bed.

her food, water, bed are all in the playpen and the playpen is lined with pee pads so she does not have far to walk for anything she may need.I will be posting update daily to keep you all informed of her progress.

Again, i thank you all for keeping Coco Bean in your prayers and thoughts and for keeping your paws crossed for her. While i know she still has a ways to go for recovery, i know that the power of the paw is working so please continue to keep her in your thoughts and paryers.

Love Always,

~The Mommy

Oh I am so glad she is home safe and sound. Her booboo looks exactly like my dogs did but I am very surprosed she has not got it bandaged or strapped up. Saying that it will heal quicker all open to the air like that. Bless her heart she looks so sad with that lampshade collar on her, she certainly looks happier with the donut one.
I always have a blob of peanut butter on my finger for any meds that are not nice tasting for them to nom on to take the taste away.
She will start to out weight on it as she starts feeling more herself, it can take a few days for the Anesthetic to work it way out of th esystem.
Please give her gentle loves n hugs from us and we are sending our bestest healing vibes her way.
Love

I am happy to see Coco at home now!
I am sure she will be like new in no time!
That med does not sound good!
I hope her Vet will give something with a better taste!
Take care

In a week you'll be feeling so much better that your mom will be struggling to keep you calm! The bath tub would be a great place to get a little swimming in once you're able to start your physical therapy. My cousin was put in the pool and allowed to paddle about with a floatie on. It helped her a lot!
