BHRR's Hailey came with me to the Vets on Saturday and weighed 50 Kgs(110 pounds).

Her recheck was great! She is still toe touching and limping some yet; her spirits are so much higher and she is happier and more like herself and back to being a bit pushy to some of the dogs and affectionate to humans! YAY!

I ordered more Cartrophen and we are going to try 1.5 ml bi-weekly and if that causes a deterioration; we shall go back up to once a week.

We continue to monitor for any heat and/or swelling that would indicate that she now has a soft tissue injury.
