Sorry I didn't post this yesterday, but I was distracted by all the St. Patty's Day stuff. :D

Went to the vet yesterday for a check up on the leg.  Doc says it seems to be healing well.  Henry hasn't limped in more than a week.  He did say two more weeks of restriction without the meds to see how Henry does.  Doc also says that we can walk more, just make sure it is walking, not trotting, running, etc.

So we're getting there! :D   Thanks for all the prayers, I know they've helped! :D

So glad to hear Henry's leg is healing nicely. Must be killing him being in slow down mode for so long. We're all sending healing thoughts from up here in New York. Get well tough guy.:thumbup:

Hey Zhanna! Good news for you.  Keep him restricted and don't give in to his wanting to use it too hard.  Start him with short walks and progress with longer ones as you see no pain response.  Think rehab and we'll all keeping praying and hoping it is a strain healing itself.  It is very hard to diagnose a torn ACL on a dog so that was hopefully not what it was.

Yes!  Praise God!  Good news.

BUT!  Forgot to mention that he has tapeworms! :roll:
But doc gave some meds and said one dose is all it takes to kill them.  So at least that's a quick fix.

Dogs get tapeworms from ingesting fleas.  Since Henry doesn't have fleas, he prob. got the worms from the birds he's been killing and eating. :roll:
Oh well, at leas they're gone now. :D

So glad Henry is feeling better! I bet he can't wait to romp around!

My boyfriend also says that Henry is a great looking guy (he doesn't comment much!!)...he hopes Gus grows up to look like him! LOL

So glad Henry is on his way to recovery - I can only imagine how hard it has been to keep him restricted.
