It’s been a bit over two weeks since Maggie was to the vet about her back leg. If you remember, Maggie completely severed her ACL on her back left leg.
She’s been living in her kennel for the past 2+ weeks because it was the only way to allow the injury to scar over.
I had to keep her on a leash to go potty outside so she didn’t try to run and make things worse.
Maggie has finally been released and while I will keep her on a leash when outside doing her business.
She free to roam the house once again and is thankfully able to use the stairs as well. Prior to this two weeks of bedrest, I had to carry her up and down the steps.
The vet says that she will still limp sometimes but aside from a $6,000 surgery, there’s nothing that can be done about that.
The important thing is that she’s not in any pain and has regained use of her leg, at least to some degree anyway.
She’s sleeping in our room for the first time in close to 3 weeks.
It’s so nice to put this behind us because Maggie is a very social dog and this was really hard on her. It was really hard on us as well but we understood it was in her best interest.
Hopefully, this was all she needed and things can go back to normal.
I’m so grateful she’s doing better because she’s part of our family and I feel like we got her back.
