Recuperation is Going Well

Schatzi has been recuperting very well at home. For the next 8 weeks, she will be restricted to her crate - we chose to use a larger wire crate, where her soft wooly pads and blankies can comfort her & her water dish can be clipped to the inside.

She is eating and able to take a few wobbly steps on bathroom breaks. Time is going to take care of the rest & we are fully confident she will walk strong again.

Oskar is still under the weather, unable to keep his supper down last night & un-interested in his b'fast this morning. Will offer him hamburg & rice again today, if he accepts & tolerates it; then hopefully he will be over worst of this bout. Xena has recovered fully-back to her normal self!

I know Schatzi will heal quickly now that she's home, glad she's doing so well. We got a large wire crate for Sam's recovery too, so that he could look around and didn't feel so confined.
Hugs to Schatzi, and hope that Oskar is feeling better soon.

I think the wire crate is a good idea. If Schatzi can't be part of the action, at least she can see it. Does crate rest, mean no cuddling or lap sitting for 8 weeks?
Ruby has the same symptoms as Oskar. Vet thinks it's from the anethetic. Hope he's better soon.
