November 30th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Abby had her one month ampuversary yesterday, and her second round of chemo today. Hopefully her reaction to the chemo will be as minimal as last time. She certainly seemed to have tons of energy afterward! She did throw up a tiny bit this afternoon – […]

Appropriate Treat for a Tripawd

November 23rd, 2010 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!So, I go to get the dog a biscuit last night, and this is what comes out of the box: Yes, it’s a one-legged man cookie. Nice. Now, if I’d just had a limb amputated and someone handed me a handicapped gingerbread man, I think I’d […]

A Side Effect of The Side Effect

November 15th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

So, we are 5 days post Abby’s first chemo treatment and she’s still doing really well. Haven’t had to give her any of the anti-nausea medication and she hasn’t been sick at all. This weekend though, we did have to give her a bath, due to a side effect of a chemo side effect. We’ve […]

Who knew – chemo is fun!

November 10th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Well, Abby had her first chemo session today and she loved it. (She’s so nutty.) It was the most excited I’ve seen her in about a month. She was bouncing all over the place and kissing everyone and hopping around. Hopefully she’ll be OK with the nausea the next couple of days. They gave me […]

Staples: Gone! Now if we could lose the cone…

November 9th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Abby got her staples out yesterday, 10 days post surgery. She’s doing really great. Unfortunately she still has to wear her e-collar, since otherwise she chews on the oh-so-delicious scabs. (mmmmm. scabs.) In fairness to dogs, I guess if I had no fingers, I’d chew any scabs I had as well. After all, who can […]

Wolf Instincts

Yesterday, Abby had her follow up appointment at the vet to have her drain removed. She’s such a sweetheart. I thought she might be afraid to head back in there, but no, as soon as we pulled into the vet’s parking lot she was ready to jump out of the car. With the help of […]

“I want to be alone”

November 3rd, 2010 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

I posted a question the other day on the Recovery forum about Abby’s aloofness since her surgery. (Thanks, by the way, to everyone who offered suggestions and support.) I’m pretty convinced it’s a side effect of feeling funky on the Tramadol, but plan to talk to the vet about it when we go see him […]

Hello fellow Tripawd pawrents!

November 1st, 2010 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Hello all. Well, I’m sure the same with all of you, this isn’t really a site I would have joined if things hadn’t conspired against us… Just found out our 15-month-old puppy, Abby, has osteosarcoma last Monday. Here we are, only a week later, and she has already had her right front leg amputated. I’d […]
