Oskar Update



That should be plural....dachshunds....


Oskar had a check up with Dr. Bailey at the AVC this afternoon & he is progressing really well. He can fully stand on his right hind leg, but has a ways to go with the left leg. But all in all, she was very pleased to see how far he has come in a little over a week.

Another recheck, after another 4 weeks on crate rest & we will see where we are then. Hopefully, he will be able to stand on both back legs...but we are taking one day at a time. He has not required pain medication for the past four days..and is very comfortable, eating & drinking & able to take a few steps when outside.

The trouble is now that he is feeling better...he is antsy being couped up most of the time, but it has to be in order for his back to heal properly.
