    No More Squirrel Chasing For Maggie

    My baby girl Maggie has torn her ACL on her left hind leg. A trip to
    the Vets this morning confirmed my fears. It happened yesterday morning
    on her regular morning outee. I thought she might have sprained something
    as she came limping back to the back door. Rest & pain meds didn't seem
    to help her much at all & she was crying a lot by evening time.

    The Vet said she thinks it might be a tear and not a rupture & with total
    rest & some meds she could recover enough to start small walks on leash.
    I have a feeling this is going to be a long summer of confinment & rest for
    my sweetie. Can you please spare some good vibes & prayers that Maggie
    heals up without surgery? The Vet thinks it is possible & I want so to believe
    that.

    Oh no!! That is my worst fear as well. I am so sorry.
    I will be hoping that it will heal up and she will not have to have surgery.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I can hear RB Cody saying *Oy Vey*! He went through torn ACLs on each knee. It's my worse fear with Mz Logan too (that and Bloat) Blame it on the critters invading our babies's property!

    Lots of prayers, of course, Liz, for you and darling Maggie. I guess it's good that it's 100 degrees and too hot to run around.
    Now listen up, Maggie...stay cool and calm 'cause mom is really worried and so are we. I hope Maggie doesn't need surgery.

    It's too early to tell really, but Maggie is definately getting around
    better now then when the accident happened. It will be 2 weeks tomorrow
    since she injured her leg. She puts more weight on the left leg & only limps
    when she first gets up after she has been sleeping. Otherwise, she acts
    much like her old self. (minus the jumping around)

    The Vet said it could take several months to give a more definate
    picture of her recovery.Meantime I still take her outside on a leash
    every time & limit her activity inside too. Maggie is being a good girl
    about the whole thing.

    Think Maggie has a bladder infection. Poor baby has to go pee every
    5 mins. Called the Vet & they can't see her till tomorrow.

    Oh NO!!! Poor Maggie! UTI's are the worst. I hope you get some sleep, Liz. I'll bet the vet visit can't come quick enough!
    You'll be OK Maggie. Just hang on another day. You've been such a good, good girl throughout all your boo-boos. I love you and will be thinking of you and mom.

    Thanks Karen,

    Vet confirmed she has a "raging UTI". Had blood & white cells in her urine.
    Maggie got a shot of antibiotic & sent home with antibiotic pills to take till
    this is gone. She is such a little trooper about it all & I can't stop hugging her.
    I'm crazy about this little girl.

    Prayers for Maggie! My sister's dog Seamus tore both his ACL's recently and had surgery. He's bouncing back fast!

    Maggie has been doing so well lately (knock wood) that I've started
    to talk her for walks around the neighbor hood again. They are short
    walks but it makes her soooo happy. Smokey too, he hasn't been going
    either. I couldn't take him & not Maggie, so I stopped walks altogether
    while she healed up.

    Boy, you would think I gave them steak or something, they both were
    so excited to go on walkies again. This was the 2nd time this week &
    we'll continue with a slow & easy pace for now. Thanks for all the prayers
    and good wishes.
