    Defaultcross post from O&E...After 8 looooong weeks

    Angus is cast and splint free!!!!! Woohoo! We have to take it easy with several short walks a day, ON leash for a few weeks, but YAY!!!! no more bagging his foot to go out to poop! He only has 1 pressure sore, and it is small (but stinky :-X)

    8 weeks ago Angus was running in the woods in our backyard chasing a ball and he tripped on something (or stubbed it?)and broke the very tip of his middle toe on his right hind leg. He's been in a cast, and most recently a splint for the last 8 weeks. 8 weeks of no exercise, no walks, no playing, and putting grocery bags on his foot everytime he went out to go to the bathroom. Also, the steel bar that stuck out of the end of his cast gouged the hell out of my floors the first time he came home with it on. I had to go buy ski mitts to put over his paw...several because the bar kept wearing though them. Over $800 in xrays & cast changes & sedations later, my mantra has been, "I love my dog, I love my dog, I love my dog..."

    The pressure sore is just a sore from being in a cast for so long. His vet said usually there are more, so one is very good. His whole foot stinks from being wrapped & cast for so long, so I'm not sure if it is his whole foot or just the sore itself that is funky :-X

    Holy crap, all of that from tripping on something? Poor little bubbie.

    He must feel so much better with that off.
