Pixie Progress

Our little Pixie had her first post surgery follow-up appointment yesterday. Her stitches were removed and she received a great report! We are going to start slowing lowering her does of medication and she is even able to start going on short five minute walks in the next week.

We are so excited and grateful that the damage to her back wasn’t permanent and are hopeful that she will make a full recovery. She will still be mostly confined to her bed, or our laps, for about 4-6 more weeks, but she has done amazingly well with this so far. Especially considering that Roxy and Sydney are visiting for a couple of weeks.

    Just found your blog through the IVDD tag! My doxie is experiencing his first IVDD episode too and I’ve been writing about it. Let me know if I can ever be supportive — I know how hard it is.

      It’s been seven weeks today since Pixie had her surgery and it has been amazing how quickly she is recovering. Hopefully your pup is doing well also!
