    Miss Tallulah and I send Hershey our love. And I wish you both success at finding the best surgeon for Hershey. It looks like there is lots of excellent information coming in to help you. It is so difficult to go through something like this knowing your fur kid is suffering. My heart goes out to you. Please keep us posted on what happens.

    Well we have him setup for a consult in New Castle (they wont do anything without that) for the 21st, then they will schedule surgery... who knows when that will be. I'm hungry and half frozen, working on the ramp...and I'm only through my 1st 1/2 cup of coffee ! With our work schedules it almost has to be 'local' can't really drive 2+ hours for a 15 min meeting, to return, it would mean us both missing work. I'm STRESSED right now !

    but I'll be ok Just hoping he will be - it sucks keeping him in his Kennel XPen area almost 24/7 and keeping him on his pain meds, AND keeping him away from Gizmo! *sigh*

    Thanks for all the advice and best wishes... we gotta do some serious research it looks like !

    Thoughts and Prayers go out to you all. Do we have anything on EBN to donate to our own members during crisis like this? I know we help rescues. Every little bit would help I'm sure.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    Yes, DACVS are the letters you want to see after your vet surgeon's name. It means that they have the highest Board Certification there is. DACVS stands for Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Surgeons. As far as limiting activity while the knee heels, just do your best. Don't let him jump up or down. Pick him up and place him down. Gets stairs and ramps. Use a harness and leash. I don't like to crate a dog, but that is an option as well. The best thing I did was to buy an over-sized doggie stroller off of the internet for about $200. That way when I went out my Bully rode in the stroller and did not have to walk at all.

    **UPDATE** Hershey does *NOT* need surgery at this Time *YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA* the Ortho looked him over, and moved him around, watched his gate and said, that he might have a tear, or a partial, but he wouldnt recommend surgery right now, if he pulls up lame then definitely surgery. But no need right now. We inquired about 'is he in pain' etc and the Ortho put us totally at ease the he feels Hershey might have a little discomfort, just starting out in the morning... (like some of us 2 leggers) but once he gets going and stretches out, he seems fine.

    so we are going to go with that diagnoses. We are a bit worried that our usual Vet's partner, said it was Hershey's LEFT leg, and the Ortho found nothing wrong with the left, but did the right. *shrug* we'll monitor him...but as it is now... Make room at Yappy Hour and BullyPolloza !
