Have been thinking about you and wondering if there is an update on Benny and his xray yet.

Sorry, but I am a naturally nosey woman. )w(

Thank you so much, so sorry I've been naughty and not posted how our lovely boy is doing.

Benny had his 6-week check on 27th December and very pleased to report everything is as it should be. Surgeon Alan even said he was ahead of where they'd expect and 80% back to normal at that stage.

We are now week 10/11 post TPLO and he's doing grand and we're so very proud of our lovely boy.

Seeing Roman our vet for a 12 week check next week.

We started hydrotherapy last week and he seems to absolutely love it. His second session was yesterday and with the help of a ball (he's very ball motivated) he got in and even swam by himself )c(

Here's some more recent pictures :-D

They are lovely piccies, he looks soooo good too. )t' {hug}

Does he have the jets on in the hydro pool yet, or will that come later? Also will your insurance pay for so much hydro, Lexi's did.

Thanks Jembi and Gwen {hug}

I'm not sure if there are jets in the pool Gwen, they haven't been mentioned as yet.

It does have bubbles that I've noticed, like a jaccuzi I think.

We ran out of money for our insurance when Benny had his TPLO, so we've been paying for everything since. His surgery and follow up came to just over £4,000 and we were allowed £1,200 towards it. We happily pay it to get our lovely boy right {hug}

They said we can start claiming again in May this year.

His hydro sessions are £20 a go, which I think is very reasonable. I'm very impressed with our lady, she's extremely meticulous.

The first week, she took a very detailed medical history, did loads of observations and took heaps of measurements.

Then when he's in the pool he does short bursts, then she takes his obs again.

He looks like he's really enjoying it too, which is fab )t'

So glad that Benny is doing so well. Vet costs and treatment are so high but we do what we have to do, if we can of course, for the animals that we care so much about.

Looking good. The swimming will do him the World of good.

One of my clients had to have their Bulldog operated on for Cruciate. When they went to pick her up they had done the WRONG leg yike* So now the poor little soul has to have the 8 week cage rest etc. Before having the correct leg operated on. As well as putting all her weight on the already damaged leg yike*
Apart from anything that goes through your head. How did they not notice that it was a healthy leg, before they started >dum<

£20 is what Clare paid for Lexi, so I think the same price down south is very good. I am real pleased that he enjoys it, makes all the difference, bless him.

Yes I thought it was very reasonable too Gwen.

There is a place here in MK, but this other lady just 'felt right' - she's listed on the Davies website and also registered with the Cannine Hydrotherapy Association, which the MK one wasn't.

We really needed an underwater treatmill for Lexi as recommended by Davies vets, but the only ones that were registered with NARCH think its called were all down south which was a bit of a bummer to say the least.

Clare had a look at the Honeys website but it only seems to do real large chunks/carcasses and Teddy doesnt really seem to understand anything very big, food wise............bit slow he is. LOL

We've just had a very tentative and gentle ball throwing session on our walk, very pleased to report he's doing fine.

It was so good to see our lovely boy running for his ball which he loves. I didn't take my camera on our walk, but here's our Benny in his garden :-D
