Bacio’s recovery is coming along. It has only been the first few days of many to come, but I’ve already seen progress. The coloring around his incision is getting back to normal, and his butt isn’t so pink now that the hair is starting to grow back. He’s finally getting more comfortable in the kennel, and actually tries to get back in the kennel when I pull out the ice pack.
Those of you in Chicago know how cold it has been… Bacio doesn’t like being outside very long cause his butt is so naked. He does enjoy the fact that he’s out of the cage though, so at night I keep tying the dogs off on opposite ends of the room and I’ve moved the mattress to the ground so Bacio doesn’t give me sad eyes if I go on the bed.
I started gently massaging the leg to get the blood flowing better. I downloaded a recovery guide from fhoguide.com. I thought touching his leg this soon would bother him, but he fell right asleep. Today when I took him out it was very cold, but he seemed to be putting his leg down better. Once he got inside where it was warm he walked with all 4 paws only with the occassional limp.
Yuki is starting to get cabin fever, she wants to play with her brother. She sits close to his cage and patiently waits for him to be better. Or maybe she just sits that close trying to get his toys and treats outta there with her jedi mind tricks. She’s been on her meds for her UTI and they appear to be helping. I will try and get a little video up soon of Bacio and his progress. As I had mentioned before pictures are being posted more often on the Facebook and Twitter accounts.
