Liza's A New Girl Now

So Liza has developed a significant seroma on her amputated leg side. We are continuing to monitor its progress with the help of the OSU Vet staff. She hasn’t been eating her normal amount since returning home, and preferred to be hand fed. Last night she slept all the way until 4:30am! I know, not so great, but she was up almost the entire night the prior evening and a little restless – so I’ll take it. Besides, she was used to getting up at 430-500, going potty, and going back to bed so I’m looking at it as progress. She also hopped over to her breakfast bowl this morning – she didn’t eat everything, but the effort was there!

Our washing machine is getting a workout due to the medicine side effects – it seems like whenever she moves, she loosely poops. Can’t wait for next months water and electric bill! She seems to be adapting to her three legged situation, and keeping her calm and un-moving has been a bit of a challenge today.

    Love the picture of the two dogs together. It almost looks like the white one is taking care of her. ❤

      His name is Cooper, and he is definitely all about taking her of her and making sure she’s happy!

    Lovely, lovely Lisa! You are such a MAGNIFICENT beautiful girl!!

    Yeah, seromas ap do I deed bappen. My Happy Hannah (a Bull Mastiff) had a very saggy fluid pocket that would sort of come and go a couple of times the first week or two.

    Although she NEVER missed a meal, she sure was restless and uncomfortable for those first several days and loooong noghts! Sleeping wasn’t in the cards for about the first three nights at least!

    And YAY for effort Lisa!! You’re up and moving so that’s good! Try any foods she’ll eat…chicken, steak, stinky liverwurst, cheese pizza, macaroni and chees, scrambled eggs……….,.whatever works!

    Thanks for sharing these great poctures. She really is a lovely gal…And her buddy is very handsome too!!


    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
