Cross your fingers and toes, Rough goes back to the vet Monday, here's hoping and praying that he's healed enough to come out of the splint and cone.   Even if he has to stay quiet for awhile longer, if he's out of the splint and cone, he'll be a happier dog; and there might be a little bit of sanity back in the house.

Hope it works, cause he's driving me batty.   I'm sure we'll still have to watch him and keep him somewhat quiet for awhile after the splint is removed while his muscles fill back in, since they are skinny from lack of use; but that will be dealing with the cone of shame and the splint.

Drat, and double drat.  Rough is in the 10% of canines that don't heal well from breaks.  We are going to try the vet's suggestion and just go "naked" and see how he compensates for his problem, he's walking on it some, so we are going to wait and see.  Our next option is amputation, then euthanasia; so, we'll see how  he compensates.
We'll be keeping him quiet and see how he does.  He's in his kennel now, but he probably has a couple more hours before he's fully awake from his sedative to take x-rays and removed his last splint.   
I'll be looking into doggy sports wraps later this evening when I have time; but now it's back to work.

I sure hope so.   I did find a dog hock support wrap, it's about $50, so will show it to Shayne and see what he thinks; it might it wrong for where his break is, but we'll look into it further.

Not sure how much healing is going on, but he's coping great.  We are still trying to keep him a bit quite, so he can rebuild muscle and support is bum leg.  He does walk on it some, but packs it some if he's running.

Its a great sign that he has been putting some weight onto the leg. Fingers crossed hes back to running around in no time. Good idea keeping him quiet, I did with my dog.

Sounds like there's some positive healing going on.  Continuing to pray that he behaves and continues to heal.   ;pray ;pray

Just checking to see if Rough has had some positive progress in the last week.

Do you have fall round up that he's accustomed to working in? Or is this the time of year where he normally just putters around? Like Diane, he's still on prayer list here, too.

He's a typical Heeler, he's 90 all the time, it's hard to slow him down.  He's coping well, but I'm not sure how much healing we've got going on.  We are keeping him away from cattle work til he has more time to build his muscle back up, which will hopefully stabilize his leg; he's missed a couple cattle moves, but might be able to start back at it by the time we are ready to ship calves in late November or early December.

I've thought about Rough quite a bit this week. How's he doing? Will he be able to help when you ship calves?

I do hope he's on the mend.......
