13 days after surgery
I took Shaggy in for his suture removal and leg check today.
Although he's still limping slightly, I'd say his energy level certainly has returned to normal :)
The surgeon explained that his recovery will be a "two steps forward, one step backwards" kind of experience.
We discovered this first hand as Shaggy fell running up the deck stairs last Sunday and hurt his leg again :(
He didn't use it for a full 24 hours. I was honestly scared that he would need surgery again.
But thankfully, he's doing just fine. It might take a few months for him to stop limping and realize that his leg really is okay to use now. He's been used to only having 3 good legs his entire life.
I'd say he's in good hands :)
