    @Sherry - How's that leg doing? Did you get the brace? I'd like to see some video of her hating it - you know she's not going to LIKE that thing! hahahaha Bea would probably refuse to walk in a brace and Bo would chew it off pronto. hahahahahahaha

    @Vicaroo1000 no brace yet, yeah a video would be good, I've seen them on different sites, they look very uncomfortable. hubby says we should have the surgery if necessary, this weekend she hasn't had any problems, we even went for our walk, I'm wondering if everyone is over reacting.?? (Vet and me and hubby) Some people say that with rest the leg can heal, depending on what the problem is. We certainly have been resting it up until the walk. Playing it by ear.

    Thank you for asking, I will keep you updated.

    I've been watching Dolly like a hawk and she has not had a limp at all over the weekend, 3 days actually. I'm taking her for a walk later, hoping to cheer her up. She's down in the dumps. I can only imagine how down she'd be if we put a brace on her. YIKES

    She's had some nasal drip for a couple of days and she woke up this morning without it and no cough. No benny for her today.

    Wow! I missed this whole thread! I'm sorry Sherry! I have no real experience with this sort of thing...but some good friends Lab got hit by a car..and instead of surgery for a hip injury..she was kept quiet..crated a lot..and she recovered with no permanent damage. The resting can do wonders in the right circumstance.. Hope she is continuing to improve.
