Another Amazing Tripawds Three Legged Dog Blog

Round 2

We are on day 5 since round 2 and we are doing better than last time though the appetite is not great we can usually get something she will eat. Hopefully when we check blood tomorrow the liver enzymes will still be heading downward the the wbc will not have dropped much. Seems like the back leg gets weak during the chemo and the physical therapist said to only take short easy walks, salt soaks and a little swimming but we are having to cut back because the pool water is getting too cool. We go to a rehab vet near Houston on Thursday to see what he would suggest. Dr. Wall comes highly regarded by Texas A&M vet school as a leader in pain management and rehab for dogs. Hopefully he can help this older girl out.

  1. Woo Hoo. I like frozen stuff too. At least you are past the ooky feeling. Almost halfway there with chemo too. Good luck with Dr. Wall. We hope he can help with the pain.

  2. Hi Zip,

    Mom takes me swimming in a warm water pool. She says it costs a lot, but “I’m worth it”. Maybe you can find a warm pool too.

    I want frozen yogurt too! Looks delishish.
