Petra continues to make great strides in her recovery overall but had a bit of a tough day. She woke up with an upset tummy so refused breakfast. She got gaba and Tramadol during the day but no NSAID until this evening when she was feeling better and ate a good dinner. She seems to be having a tougher time getting comfortable today and is wanting to lick her stitches which she had not been doing up to this point, so we had to put the cone of shame back on. Poor girl can’t catch a break today. I also noticed a small seroma on her incision line so used a warm compress to try to relieve discomfort. More rest and recovery is in order, guess.
On the bright side, it’s getting harder for me to distinguish her gait from that of my other dogs moving around the house! Although she still does not have much stamina, she is moving around and getting out to potty with no trouble.
Hope all the tripawds and their families are having a good Friday!
