Day 10 post op – Day 2 Chemo

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I am glad to say Barney looks better today, he is still off his food, although he really likes luncheon meat, of course, hand fed and he quite likes being hand fed biscuits.
He still has some fluid around the scar and it does still “flop” about when he walks.
I went out with our other dog Fred this morning and my husband and Barney came and met us at the end. This was the furthest walk he has been since being on three legs and he looked like he was really enjoying himself. He and Fred played for a bit – I tried not to look – and as Pat says it will help him build up his strength and get him back to a normal doggy life. I know he is right but it is really hard to keep my worries in check.
The weather is damp but very bright and Barney is a real outdoors dog and loves nothing more than lying about in the garden or drinking out the pond as you can see!

    So glad to hear Barney is doing well today. When Nova was recovering she liked lunchmeat too, especially what we called “Ham Balls”, which we would roll up a meatball of canned dog food and wrap it in a piece of deli ham.

    Once he’s done with the chemo, his hair will start to grow back and he’ll look like himself again. This is the hardest part right now so of course you’re going to worry! But sounds like Barney is doing great so keep it up and we will continue to send healing thoughts your way.
