Surgery Went Well

Well the Dr. visited with my new parents on Monday and said my blood work all came back good, so the surgery day will be set for Wednesday to have my damaged foot and leg removed. My parents wished there was something else that could be done but the Dr. said that I would do well, and that the way she recommended was the best for my long term heath.

So I have another day to rest up and gain my strength, then I will have all the tissue that is torn and broken removed and be able to heal and start to feel like a fun dog again.

My new parents came to visit me every day before and after the surgery, trying to make sure I knew that I was loved and had a good home to go to when all of this was over.

The surgery started in the morning and lasted just about an hour or so, it took a hour for the anesthesia to wear off enough that I could stand up. I wanted out of the crate I was in and wanted to walk around. I had been on 3 legs for almost a week so I did not have trouble getting around without my bad leg, and it was actually easier because I did not have to hold it up.

The Dr. was very surprised, and told my parents that I was a super dog to be up and about so quickly.

My parents did not visit today as the Dr had told them I would probably need the day to get it all together, boy did I surprise her. They were here bright and early on Thursday though and I was very glad to see they had missed me as much as I had missed them. So Friday is my day to go home, just have to finish my IV’s with antibiotics and pain meds then I could go home.
Everyone at my new parents clinic were very loving and attentive, they made me feel so very special.

Emergency Dr Visit

When my new parents realized the seriousness of having a 107 temperature and were able to lower it with ice packs, they knew something else needed to be done. Having just lost their 14 month old  fur baby to seizures , she called their local vet and were told to bring Charlotte in immediately. As the Dr. Examined  Charlotte she was very surprised at the severity of the wound. She said the best treatment would be to remove the leg due to  lack of bone in the foot and the infection was so bad that the foot would not heal.

Emergency Vet Visit

Temperature and hurting

We knew Charlotte was a special fur baby and her mom felt she had to be saved, Charlotte had not made a noise or wimpier  throughout her exam and redressing of her wound. It was decided that Charlotte would stay at the clinic (the clinic that the adoption mother used) and be put on IV antibiotics and pain meds, have some blood work done to determine if she could have the amputation done on Wednesday (3 days away).
