Jaida had a wellness visit with Dr. Scarlett October 25. Her anal area is healing and she will not be requiring any additional medications. She is no longer required to wear her e-collar unless we notice her licking frequently. Her ears look okay--a little dirty on the outer ear canal. Dr. Scarlett also mentioned she appears to have a slight improvement in her palmigrade stance. She seems to be walking a little bit higher and we hope to continue to see an elevated posture.
Jaida saw Dr. Bergh on October 30. She definitely sees improvement in her front paws and believes that hydrotherapy will be beneficial. We currently have two appointments set with VRCW on November 9 and 20. Dr. Bergh would like to see Jaida again in six weeks. Jaida is now 29 pounds. Dr. Bergh has asked us to cut back slightly on her food to keep her weight on the low end. Dr. Berg mentioned surgery might be considered on her back legs due to her problems in her patella. This would be after she is fully grown and her front paws are doing better.
