Misty, Labrador Mix

Misty1This is Misty.  Left carpel wound, right rear also has multiple wounds, pain on extension of left hip.  Despite her injuries, she passed her county evaluation, so M.A.I.N. will be welcoming her into the family later on today.

Medical Update, April 18th: Misty had a dislocated hip which Dr. Katie was able to pop back in (not as simple as it sounds – lots of muscle needed on their parts). Fingers crossed that the femur stays where it is supposed to now; they often don’t, especially when trauma to the joint is severe. She needs STRICT cage rest and will go to foster tomorrow.





Misty’s Updates:

Misty’s foster family plans to officially adopt her after nursing her back to health these past few months. Congrats to Misty and her perfect fur-ever family!

Misty! April 28thUpdate on Misty, May 12th: Misty had a check up at BAH today. She is building up the muscle in her leg. She is walking on it more, until she gets excited. She had her booster shots today. She is such a mellow sweet girl, who just wants lots of love and attention!

From Misty’s foster mom, April 30th: Misty had a vet appointment yesterday. Her hip is only 50% in place. The vets want to keep an eye on it to see if it will start building calcium around it as it heals, so she may not need to have FHO surgery. They also said to keep doing what I am doing with her, making her use her leg as much as possible to build up the muscle. She doesn’t seem to be in any pain from it being the way it is. She is a happy-go-lucky girl and so sweet!

From Misty’s foster mom, April 22nd: Misty had a vet appointment today. She has another one next week as well to xray her hip. Depending on how she is doing, she be able to start physical therapy at home.
She is now on an antibiotic as she started sneezing and coughing. She seems to never NOT have a smile on her face though!
