Jaida saw Dr. Bergh on March 5th. She is now 46 pounds and anxious to "let loose!" Dr. Bergh is very pleased with how Jaida is healing and is seeing some muscle development in the right thigh. She does not appear to be in any pain and her previous sore spots are doing well. She is able to keep the Elizabethan collar off as long as she doesn't lick at her incision.
Jaida will be seen again in two weeks and will have a final set of X-rays. Unless something unforeseen happens, she should be released from care. Until then, Jaida is still on activity restrictions. However, as the weather permits, she can go on short walks.
Although Jaida is tolerating her convalescence with good spirits, she gets excited and wants to play - not showing any signs of pain. Furthermore, she is standing almost normally on her front paws. We are very pleased with her progress.
