Up date on Barron’s Hip replacement July 4

Here is Barron’s update….

It has been 6 weeks since his hip replacement. Everything has greatly improved. He now pee’s and poo’s outside usually within his 5 minute time limit some times we have to make a second trip out so both are completed.

He still uses the ramp to get in and out of the house still no steps, he really goes down pretty fast but allows me to use the towel to come back up, has to have his snack to get him back in the crate but things have been uneventful (thank God) so we have two more weeks until we go back for x-rays to see how the bones is growing into the implant then maybe he can have a little more freedom. I so hope he can come out of his crate for a short time, he is so bored in it but he is kept in the living room with me so he can see whats going on around him.

Last Saturday I had to move him to my bedroom because of a party we were having so he wouldn’t get excited because of the people so I guess he got mad because he ate the corner of the bottom of my dresser. I did think we were past the puppy chewing at 1 year silly me. So as long as things stay the way they are I will update after his x-rays.

Thanks Bonnie and Barron

Thanks for the update Bonnie, sounds as though Barron is doing great and has been a trooper 🙂 Rotties are pretty stoic and will tolerate quite a bit of pain, and restrictions if necessary!

I hope the x-rays are positive and he’s able to get out and about a bit more. You’ve done a fantastic job of ‘nursing’ him and he’s one lucky boy.

I know this will be a source of help to other Rottweiler owners who have to go through the same experience. Fingers crossed for the x-rays, do let us know how it goes ~ Sue
