Someone had his recheck today!
On May 15th, BHRR’s Hercules had his leg amputation and, Dr. Liston wanted to give some areas of his amputation site a longer time for the healing process was being quite slow. When we were last in, Dr. Liston took out what staples he could and today, he felt that all remaining staples plus sutures could be removed!
He has one area – that corner with lots of scabbing yet, underneath everything looks healthy and pink per Dr. Liston!
He was an incredible patient laying down on his side while Dr. Liston removed all the sutures plus staples, part of his one big scab and, Dr. Liston also examined his other legs to see how they were doing. I had been hearing some clicking yet, Dr. Liston could elicit none and, Herc was so at ease through the whole exam…..
He was more curious as to why the people in the other room were not coming in to see him! He is so social and loving and, gives all of his heart when cuddles…..all of his body also!
We did a T4 today to see how his levels are doing since he started the thyro-tabs and, tons of compliments on his coat plus body condition. I was a bit worried as his weight was down yet, his does look great and Dr. Liston feels that fluid etc., could be responsible. He has lost over 50 pounds since he arrived to BHRR so obese.
He was given the thumbs up and had his first vaccines. We will give him boosters in about three-four weeks and, from there he should be ready to make his special announcement!
This boy is going to make me well up immensely when his right matched forever loving home finds him….he is truly one outstanding dog….incredible!
Way to go Hercules!! You have made this rehab journey with you one of honour plus privilege!
AND, thanks to all of his angels we ONLY owe $303.20 on his bill at Dr. Liston now, after I paid for today’s visit plus put down more money on his amputation bills! Almost completely paid off now!!
