We're back to the vet's - AGAIN!

It's been many weeks since I was on this site - I'm no longer getting email notification when there's a message.  I thought I posted a message of Farley's latest situation but since I can't find it anywhere, I'm trying again.  (You can tell I'm not much of a "techie")

 

Look at the photo on the header of the main page - a doodle having a great time running in shallow water.  Well, that's EXACTLY what Farley was doing earlier this week at the sandy beach in town - and guess…

Farley's home again

Farley's home again!

What a great vet I have!  He went to the clinic to feed Farley @ 1 am and later in the day took him for a couple of walks to check for progress.  All the blood tests showed many things he DOESN'T have - which is a good thing to know.  And by next weekend Farley should be finished his aquatherapy for his cruceate surgery rehab. 

I'm really hoping to stay away from all vets for a L O N G time!  Cross your fingers!

Here we go again ...a continuing saga of Farley & the vet

Farley and I were invited to my son's house 100 kms away for Mothers' Day where we overnighted.  The next day I drove my daughter-in-law and grandson 100kms to Toronto (in the opposite direction) to catch a flight to London & Paris. LUCKY DUCKS!!!!!!  So when we were passing through my town, I dropped off Farley and asked my Farley-loving neighbours to look after him.  Well that was Monday and shortly after, all hell broke loose with his digestive system.  He would keep food down for 12…

Farley's physio after ACL surgery

Farley and I just got back from his first physio session which went very well.  He stayed on the underwater treadmill for 7 mins and had a pretty normal gait in the water, considering he had surgery just 11 days ago.  It's a good thing I'm retired because this physio stuff is very time consuming!  Now we add 3 leg stands and sideways nudging to encourage weight bearing, and hill climbing and figure 8's in the driveway to build up the atrophied muscles.  Stay tuned ...

I'm posting my experience in hope of helping other doodle owners avoid going through the same thing.  My healthy, rambunctious 2 yr old doodle's favourite activity was ball retrieving and swimming in the lake; we did this almost daily.  To use a Canadian metaphor, he went full tilt and then slammed on the brakes like Sydney Crosby.  One day (Dec 29) when chasing the ball, he wimpered, went down and couldn't get up.  The diagnosis: a ruptured cruceate ligament.  The surgery required to fix…
