    DefaultJenica is home - update and pictures

    Jenica was released out of the hospital on Friday evening as she was doing really well considering the extent of the surgery. It will be a very slow process (about 4 to 6 weeks) until she is recovered fully, and then she will still have to regain all muscle mass that she has lost. Currently we have to support her whenever she is standing and especially when she is trying to walk up and down steps and on uneven ground. She is constantly in her harness, and she will most likely never be able to go back to a standard collar.
    However, she is a great patient, taking all her medication without hassle and she is resting a lot, which should help with the inflamed nerve and her general recovery. When we can't watch her she has to be in her crate.

    Here is our little patient:







    And one of Diesel, as he is such a great brother and really good around Jenica:

    Poor girl. I hope she has a speedy recovery. I swear the other dog/s know they need looking after. Bear is acting the same way towards Buzz.

    She had a disc extrusion above her front legs removed (C6-C7). The disc had pinched onto her leg nerves and also prevented her from being able to lift her head. We tried medication first, but when she started to slide back as soon as the medication stopped she had a CT scan, the surgery and then another CT scan to confirm that all material was removed.
