Abby is walking on her own and doing great! Almost too great. She’s eating very well which was one of my biggest concerns. I’m so thankful we haven’t had any complications, but we are struggling with the cone and confinement. Any suggestions appreciated!
It seems cruel to limit her peripheral vision and ability to get through small spaces while she’s still getting her balance.
Confinement – she has a crate but it’s hard to get in and out of with the cone on and she usually goes boneless right in front of the door. We also have a laundry room off the family room with a bed for her and a baby gate. But she howls when she’s in there – especially if she can see me on the other side of the gate.
She’s was on rest for two months prior to surgery, but we did allow her up on the couch with us so it wasn’t quite this strict. Eleven more days…
