We got some good news during Cindy’s visit to the vet today. She’s lost 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks! One of our big concerns when she tore the ligament in her leg was that we wouldn’t be able to exercise her until the leg is healed. But with arthritis and hypothyroidism, getting the weight off is important. We’d already changed the food she was getting (no more kibble and green beans with her dinner) so about all we could do was change the “treats”. We made those changes the week before she had this most recent problem so we were really surprised, and very pleased, to have some consistent weight loss the last couple of weeks.
In regard to her back legs, she now has full range of motion in both legs and is bearing some weight on the right leg. Faster progress here would have been nice (have I mentioned how messed up my back is from helping her around with our sling?) but we’ll take what we can get. 😉
