BHRR's Autumn finally had her hands on exam with Dr. Philibert yesterday and he feels that YES! She is a surgical candidate for a TPLO! She was not a candidate for extracapsular surgery with LAH and so, we needed to wait and see what DP felt re: any TPLO possibilities for her.
We would do a TPLO on her left cruciate first and if there was significant improvement, then consider the right(the right is worse and chronic yet, has it has been that way for so long prior to her rescue, Dr. Liston felt that little to no benefit may be obtained for her, yet, recommended do the left first and go from there). AND with Dr. Philibert confirming that yes, she is a candidate, very exciting news.
SO, YAY! FOR some good news for her! 🙂
Now, the next step is to see what Dr. Javinsky feels in regards to her gallbladder(KAH did an u/s last week as well) and heart and if a piece of the non weight gaining puzzle can be better resolved. We were hoping for something this week, yet, whatever works for Dr. Javinsky, we shall accommodate for whatever his schedule allows. 🙂 The x-rays we did on her heart indicated that it is a normal size yet, with that positional HM discovered, we are doing further investigation to try and rule out any underlying heart disease for this lack of weight gaining.
Her C&S has came back and the Vet has put her on an extra week of Clavamox for her persistent UTI.
We cannot put the cart before the horse, yet, I was thrilled to learn the news re: TPLO surgery for her if everything else falls into place. 🙂
Process of elimination continues for her and she was loved by the fabu extreme staff at KAH! 🙂
She remains our 'almost violent in affection', happy, bull in a china shop, vibrant GD!
GAIN WEIGHT BABY GIRL! YOU NEED TO GAIN! 🙂
AND the one thing that was not done when Sean dropped her off at KAH(I am stil off work), was a weight check! BOO! 🙁 I have been trying to monitor that very closely.
