Today was one of those “one step forward, two steps back” kind of days for Boone.
Our one step forward was that he FINALLY 💩. I know, little things make me happy. I think my friend and I let out a little cheer on our morning walk when my hubby texted me that emoji.
Our two steps back started when he only picked at his breakfast. Granted this was before our one step forward event. I probably wouldn’t want to eat if I hadn’t, well, you know, since Wednesday either.
During his morning cold compress session I noticed some redness and bruising not close to the amp site which worried me. Then I found another spot in another area and the neurotic side of me decided we needed to see the vet.
So, off we went. And it turned out all the redness and bruising was pretty much normal (I probably should have waited to hear from the fabulous TriPwawd community before subjecting Boone to a trip to his least favorite place).
He’s been pretty quiet all day and I have to keep reminding myself, and listening to those who’ve gone before us in his TriPawd journey, that it’s only 4 days post-amp. A major surgery.
We did start cold/warm compress sessions to help move some of the fluid. Thankfully my mom is an amazing seamstress so I have plenty of dog friendly rice and corn packs to help with this.
We’re getting another beautiful blanket of snow today so I hope to get some pics of Boone outside tomorrow.
Right now he just wants to sleep by the woodstove. 💖🐾
