    Update

    My boy is doing well. He has not tweaked the knee ....or given me some form of a heart attack in quite some time!! We are having some diarrhea issues....but on the up side, he has had a great appetite lately. I might actually get him up to 39-40 lbs. yet! We're working on those muscles!!

    Here are some pics I took today...

    Left side...this is the more atrophied side. He most recently had surgery on this side and this knee has the partially torn ligament. He is using it really well and his muscles continue to develop well on this side.


    Right side....his strong side. You can see the size difference by comparing the two pictures, but the difference is somewhat obscured by his fur. Obviously the left side has shorter hair as it was shaved more recently. He still has uneven breeches!

    gardengirl - Thank you for sharing your story, advice and kind words. I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Bailey (and his despicable breeder ).
    Adequan is very expensive, but I know it helps Kirk tremendously. I give weekly injections at home, and probably will continue to do so for life. If you can stomach giving the injections yourself, then your clinic might allow you to buy the bottle and do it at home (at a tremendous cost savings).
    Wishing you and Bailey all the best!!


    Many thanks to Roxyluvsme13 & k9krazee for my great new siggy!!

    Oh Kate, you have managed to make one of my least favorite threads into one of my most favorite threads. Yay, Kirkie! You are doing great! You have done wonders with him, Kate, he is so lucky to have a family that just would not give up. Look at those eyes in the last picture *swoon*; what a handsome boy.

    Whoo Hoo!!! Kirk's story moved my heart when I first read about him, and I've been constantly on the lookout for any signs of CHD with Ivy. I can hardly imagine the pain of actually dealing with it. You and Kirk are *amazing*, and you're an absolute inspiration =)
