    Default Cutty's Dr appt...

    Took Cutty for his appt today for the second opinion on his acl. Had it in my had he would be better off without surgery being 6 1/2 years old and all. Dr. Kraemer said he should have it. Says that with how healthy he is and his shape he should do great with it. Says the bones r grinding around in there, more than just an acl. So unless the surgeon is busy, Fri is the day. I have to say I loved him tho. The first known bulldog Vet to give me their time of day. Was very nice and helpful. Now to adjust to what comes next..... Ugh

    No I didn't get that far cuz I am just awful at Drs appts. Lol the guy at the desk said crated for 4 Weeks, or the equivalent of. Thinking out bedroom will be his room. We do have a table crate that was Miila's and hardly gets used but Cutty I think would not understand it so much since we have never crated.

    Jen, the surgerry's this Friday? Glad to hear though that the vet felt he'll do great! Cutty will heal in no time and the 4 weeks will go by fast and he won't even remember the crate. He's not having the TPLO surgery correct?

    Oh jenn I'm so sorry cutty needs surgery! But being the positive girl I am, I can't help but point out how happy I am that Dr Kraemer has reported that in general he is a healthy boy and that you liked Dr K so much, I knew you would because I thought he seemed like a wonderful man when I met him and having heard so many wonderful things about him from SCBR Will he have to stay overnight?

    Awwww Jen....I'm so very sorry..know you and all of us..we're so hoping for a different path! But..I'm glad you have a vet you like and feel comfortable with. And FRIDAY!!! Wowzie! As far as carting..I'm retry sure he will ave to be as immobile as possible. Being crated limits any excess activity ad he will probably have the best outcome. I have a great crate you can use as long as you need to..I knowim a ways from you..but could meet you half way??? Also..maybe an Xpen would work..but a whole room is too much space. Let me know !! And to Cutty and you!!

    Your vet sounds wonderful, Jenn. And how nice of him to squeeze Cutty in for Friday. Will be thinking of you both.

    I think sooner is better. Get it over with and sounds like the vet has a lot of confidence. Good luck and I will pray for an uneventful surgery. Stay strong.
