Thread: No More Squirrel Chasing For Maggie

  1. #16
    It's too bad to hear about your dog's torn ligament. If your vet said that surgery is not really necessary, perhaps your vet is right. a torn ligament does not always call for surgical correction. the best way to determine if your dog really needs surgery is to go through an 8-week period where activity is carefully restricted and assess whether your dog can re-stabilize the affected joint. The eight week-period is not really the time which is needed for the ligament to heal, rather it is the observation period whether or not your dog can restore stability to the joint. If after the 8-week period you have not observed any improvements, even though how little they may be, surgery may have to be done.

    Our prayers for Maggie's speedy recovery

    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.

    Oh Liz, it's been tough for both Maggie and you, but the antibiotic will surely help and Maggie will feel better very soon.

    Scritches and hugs from me.

    Poor girl. I hope she is feeling better soon and her torn ACL doesn't require surgery!

    I got a pleasant surprise this morning when I woke up. Maggie was
    up in bed with me. She hasn't been able to do that since she hurt her leg.
    I can tell she's feeling a lot better every day, but to see those little brown
    eyes staring back at me when I opened my eyes this morning was a real
    treat.

    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.
