4 weeks today since amputation

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

I can’t believe it is 4 weeks today since Barney had his leg amputated. There have been so many highs and lows. Today and yesterday have been quite high. He is coping really well on the three legs and sometimes when you see him running and playing he looks as though he still has four legs. He has been given another chance at life and he really has taken it. He looks really happy lots of tail wags and I really feel that our Barney is back.
Today went to see our vet and had Barney weighed (50kgs) also he had his blood test, ready for his Chemo on Thursday. So we will see what the next lot of Chemo is like, it is Carboplatin this time.
We are off out for our afternoons walk it is very windy and just being to get dark.

Barney can sleep any where.......

    Way to go Barney.
    Thursday here is our Thanksgiving celebration- not a great day for chemo…
    On the other hand, a great day to give thanks for how well Barney is doing!

    Keep it up Barney! Our pawrents just love when we feel good. It lets them know that the amputation was a good idea and well worth it. Who needs four legs right? Good luck with your chemo.

    Way to go Barney! Raven’s at 4 weeks too. Oct. 27 was your date? He also is doing well after a rough start. We aren’t doing chemo since we believe it to be chondrosarcoma, which is slower. Sometimes I think I should have to be safe! Keep up the great attitude Barney Boy!
    I love the pic, Raven does the same thing, has to rest his head on something. May be a rottie thing? 🙂
