Stetson had his TTO surgery today, just 9 weeks after my girl, Rave. His accident is an unfortunate co-incidence. Neither is related to their agility involvement. However both dogs being athletic competitors, we want a great outcome thru both the surgery and the ensuing physical therapy.
I have been very well pleased with Rave’s recovery and decided the exact same treatment options for my boy, Stetson.
Two years ago I fostered three Rottweiler’s over the summer. (Phoebe and Manning were adopted by new families, quickly) Stetson’s response to training was so overwhelming and solid, I adopted him from the rescue myself! He was too good to let go and he fit in nicely with my own two girls, Raven and Sable, also Rottweiler’s. He is a Clydesdale sized dog with a personality to match and a desire to please.
Stetson should be ready to come home tomorrow. We’ll be doing gel ice packs with grip wrap, crate rest, on lead potty breaks and deramaxx. In 10 days he’ll get his staples out. Then in 2 weeks he can have his intake evaluation at the PT center.
Naturally, at some point in time we will be able to book consecutive PT sessions. Maybe I can at least save on some gas?
