BUT we are extremely glad to be here to utilize website/forum and all the other resources. Our 3 1/2 year old Australian Cattledog recently had surgey to remove a rear leg (as a result of truck incident 3 years ago)… stitches (and cone !) come off this Friday ! We (and doctors) tried to save leg for 3 years .. but .. we were not successful and decided not to prolong what we knew was going to happen … surgery. Unfortunately we did not discover website until a few days before surgery.. so we did not get alot of time to research what we were getting into .. but .. we learned many things in that short time .. and we are thankful for the support.. One thought stuck in my mind… when we picked up Riley from surgery … I remembered a quote … ‘look at your dog in the eyes and not the incision’ … we did .. and I think it helped ease our concerns and Riley’s ! So .. we will now move on to find a Rehab therapist.. in an attempt to give Riley her best chance of leading a ‘better’ life .. she came through surgery well .. and still is a happy dog ! Thanks !
