I've been thinking about Kitzel a lot lately. The poor little dude is gonna be in a lot of pain for a while. He only has like 9 or 10 days before the baby sister comes - hopefully the worst will be over by then. It's gonna be a long recovery....
But on the bright side, the dude will be good as new in a few months!! :aktion033:
and he'll be ready to run and play with Lisel....:thumbsup:
Thank you so much for starting this thread & mostly for prayers. :wub:
Kitzel showed up at 10:00 this AM & his Athen's vet showed up just shortly thereafter--which was good as there was an ER surgery that got pulled in & we had to wait an hour. She was a fantastic help & at 11:15 we were all ushered in to the OP room to meet the team of 4 that would be there for the surgery. They estimate 4/5 hours and will ring us up as soon as he is finished. :thumbsup:
We felt very much at peace w/what they explained and they were all so nice & helpful that we could not be in better hands. :aktion033::aktion033: My vet agreed that doing both knees at the same time was the way to go. She told me that she had been invited to the professor's house the day before & he told her Kitzi had gone up to a 3/4 grade so waiting was not an option. He was limping quite a lot this morning as the weather is turning colder here.
They know what to watch for w/Kitzi & I know they will do all they can to alleviate the pain afterward. I am sooooo thankful that God has been so gracious to bring us here and go before us. I know it won't be an easy recovery and we will have ups and downs but I feel confident that this is the best we can do for him.:yes:
Thank you so much, again, for being here. It means so much to us & little Kitzel.
Sandi, I have been praying for precious Kitzel, his Mommy and Daddy, and all of his doctors. I wish I could be there to give you and Kitzel lots of hugs. Bless Kitzel's heart. He is such a darling fluff baby.
I will be checking in often to see how Kitzel and all of you are doing. I didn't realize the surgery took so long. But, as you are, I am confident that Kitzel is going to be just fine ... because you and Kitzel are blessed to have the best doctors for his surgery.
When you are able to hold Kitzel in your arms, please give him gentle hugs and kisses from his Auntie Marie. And, Sandi, hugs, kisses, and love for you.
I was wondering about the weight our babies should be. Kobe is 3.5 lbs and according to the vet he hasn’t gained anything this last month. It worries me a little bit. The vet says that it’s fine but he seems skinny to me. He eats well. I serve his a half cup and we free feed. He eats probably...
Hi everyone, my Nani is a year old now and scheduled for her spay next week. I am looking for recommendations for keeping her from licking her stitches. I used an inflatable collar type for a larger dog in the past and it worked well. My concern for Nani is she will start to cough and gag if...
Today I brought home a rescue Maltese-cotón tulear mix.
She’ll stay with Belle and me till her forever family is fixed (the shelter is currently reviewing 2 families). Within a week or fortnight they should have a family.
She gets along very well with Belle, but she’s scared of me. When I give...
We need to stop this! The problem is that Snowball is 8 years old and is the sweetest dog you ever saw! EVERYONE loves him and that is the problem. Sometimes they will try to pet him and he is OK. At other times he is still nice and adorable but when a person gets too close he will bark and go...
