Sweetie wants to say *hello* and tell everyone about her big day.
Today was her day to see our group's vet for a bandage change and to check her weight. So, here's today's weight ...
Yes, that's 50.8 lbs. I was a bit disappointed that she has only gained a bit over 1/2 pound since Monday, but she is eating every bite of her frequent meals and she's been running full out at almost every turnout time. Our group's vet was very pleased and commented that her muscle building in her injured leg has really improved and is catching up with the muscle development of her right rear leg. He is happy with her progress and commented how her recovery has been miraculous.
We proceeded to the treatment room for her dressing change. Below are pictures of her current healing progress. It's simply astounding!
Both of the veterinarians working with Sweetheart.
Here's Sweetheart's pretty face during her dressing change. She is actually relaxing and living up to her name by being a complete Sweetheart during the procedure.
A new length of Silverlon dressing was applied around her leg and then covered with this Kerlix gauze dressing for padding.
Then a nice, dark green vet wrap was applied and adhesive tape was added after this picture to keep everything securely in place.
Now, I'm back at my temporary home and ready to run in the turnout with the other dogs again.
I just have to break in this new bandage.
And, I'm looking forward to dinner ... if you would please take a hint!!! ; )
Have a wonderful evening everyone and enjoy your pups. We'll update again tomorrow with more pictures and video too, if possible.
