On 3/26/11, our beloved dachshund ruptured a disk in his back. Follow his long journey from injury to recovery.
Best news EVER Nathan! Look at you go!
Nathan, did someone put a firecracker on your tail??? You sure are movin! Yay!!!!!
Nathan you must be so pleased with yourself! Go baby go!Nathan, how does your mommy wrap your toes? My name is Cher and I had surgery four months ago and am now just starting to walk. Problem is like you I flip my toes over and drag the middle two down to the quick.
I buy 1" fabric bandage tape. I cut off a piece about 4 inches long, then split it lengthwise so I get 2 4 inches pieces each 1/2 wide. Then I wrap that narrow strip of tape around the bad toe on each foot. Be sure to get between the toes and wrap tightly (not too tight that it would hurt). Tape should stay on pretty well because at 4" it makes about 2 rotations around the toe. As long as the ground is not wet, it stays on. If its wet, it will fall off.
Thanks so much. It has been really encourging to see Nathan's progress. Cher walk is just like Nathans when he first started to walk. It just took Cher a litttle longer. A toast to our two amazing Doxies!
Yes, a toast! Let us know how Cher is doing over the coming months!
