Bailey has now been a tri-pawed for one month. She’s 100% back to normal with the exception of having short hair on her rump. Her dual-length fur sort of resembles buffalo hide.
She had some swelling issues over Christmas when, of course, every vet was closed for four days in a row. The solution? Apply pressure. We just had to wrap her up in an Ace bandage a few hours a day. She’s now completely healed. Her skin is tight and white, her incision is flat and smooth, and a fuzz of new fur is covering everything. And she’s skinny!
Bailey can do absolutely everything she did before. She jumps in the car. She jumps onto my bed. She’s been walking with me for up to a mile and a half. She chases the kids when they sled behind the quad. And it’s a wonderful thing to see her forget her handicap and go charging off after one of her doggy friends. I am amazed and very, very pleased. Great job, Bailey!
