Another week has passed during our double TPLO recovery. Natasha has now passed the five week mark while Cheoah is at her week 2 anniversary.
In a visit to the surgeon yesterday, Cheoah had her sutures removed. The doctor is very pleased with her progress thus far. Much like Natasha at that stage, Cheoah’s knee is feeling good and she wants to use it, but she has four more weeks of closely supervised bathroom breaks while supported on the sling. The rest of the time is spent in crate rest. Trust us when we say Cheesewhiz can be quite vocal about her discontent of being crated all of the time.
The good news is that she finished her last medicines today, so she is medication free from now on.
Natasha is entering her last week of sling supported walks. Next Monday, she will have x-rays done to confirm that the bone has healed sufficiently to begin walking exercises to rehabilitate the muscles. We are all quite excited to hit that milestone next week.
