Update on Gingersnap

Well we took her in for surgery Tuesday morning & picked her up Wednesday evening. She had torn ligaments and meniscus. She is having a real hard time but improving with every day. It will be a long road for her but much better than we originally were told. I have switched vets for good to a much better facility with a larger staff.

That's good to hear about Gingersnap! I'm lucky that I have a really good vet for my dogs nearby. Make sure she gets plenty of rest. Keep her in a place that's dark but where she can still see what's going on with her pack.

I recommend steak therapy. While not scientifically proven to be effective, my anecdotal experience is that it definitely provides short term relief for dogs

Did the vet put on one of those big Elizabethan collars (lampshade) to keep her from licking and pulling at the stitches?
