    DefaultPrayers for Rukus needed

    Rukus had a TTA done on his right knee on March 8th and his recovery had been going great....until Sunday when we noticed that his leg had swollen and that he had a temp. We took him back to the vet first thing Monday and they said he had an infection and gave him some anti-biotics. They also did an x-ray to make sure none of the metal in his knee had come undone, which thankfully it hadn't.

    It looks like he's starting to feel a little better (eating like normal, no fever, alertness is back up), but the swelling is still prominent and he won't do more than a toe touch (before he was putting full weight down). Can you all say a little prayer for my boy that the swelling goes down? I hate seeing him uncomfortable and I just want him back to the normal, mischevious guy that he usually is.

    That's a good question actually....DH took him in since I had to work and I never thought to ask him!

    Thoughts and prayers for Rukus. And maybe more.

    Since HK is likely to have CCL surgery in the near to distant future, and since we are not that far from each other. I actually go to a vet on Rockford road which is probably midway between us. Would you mind sending me the name of the Orthopedic Surgean. You can PM me if you would rather do it that way.
