Roo update

She has finally peed, which is good because there was concern about her bladder being injured.  She is still in pain and can not stand or weight bare, it is going to be weeks before that  comes. We are controlling the pain which seems to be helping and she is resting a bit better this afternoon & evening.  She is completely off her food and I am tempting her with little bits & favourite things & she is nibbling every now and then.  I am overwhelmed by her pain and feel very helpless to do more.  We are keeping in contact with our vet and updating them. It is going to be at least 3 months before she is almost her zippy self. But I am content just taking it moment by moment.  I appreciate all of your kind words, thoughts and prayers for her and us.

Oh, I'm so sorry - I missed your first post about the accident. I really hope things are on the improve for your little one.

Sweet baby! I hope she feels better soon. Dogs are tough and she wants to fight to stay with you guys. I know she will pull through this.

Is she interested in licking baby food meat products if chewing is too much? Might try it.

I will keep her close in my heart and prayers...give her a kiss for us all...Miss Roo we love you!

That's good news and thank you for the update.

I was wondering if soft foods are best in her condition. Would that be true? I have not had a pet in this situation. And I have to add- watch out for the toxic treats NOT MADE in the USA. The Chinese made treats for US companies are still sickening and killing dogs and cats.

Let's hear it for pain relief...I'll continue to keep you both in my thoughts.

So glad she is doing better.

She is scrappy and will soon be wanting to get around again.

Sorry - deleted the last comment due to operator error.

Oh Dar:

so sorry to hear that this happened but hopefully with your love and care, Roo will be back to normal before you know it.

She is in the best hands due to your medical training

Glad to hear she is showing some improvement. If the general treats and temptations stop working, might I recommend some scrambled egg with a little butter. When mine were so fed up with eating and the treats absolutely did not work, she couldn't refuse scrambled eggs. :)

So how is the little one doing now?
