JET'S RECOVERY

Hi Jet here!  First I would like to thank all our amazing blog friends for all the power of the paw they sent me and it worked so well I was allowed to come home one day early. I arrived home Tuesday afternoon with many instructions. I'm on strict crate rest for twelve days and I have to wear the cone of shame for that time so I can't pull out my stitches along my tummy or take off the bandage on my right hind The bandage is covering a fentanyl patch which is to help me with pain and Ros also thinks it's keeping me a bit sleepy and not too bouncy which is a good thing apparently. I'm also taking two different medicines. One is called rimadyl and the other is called clavulox.  I take the rimadyl once a day in the mornings and the clavulox twice daily. The rimadyl is my favourite as it tastes yummy.  I'm on four small meals a day for a little while then I'll slowly be weaned back to the amount I was on before. The Hospital even saved what I had eaten to show my humans  .
One of Ros' very good friends who owns lovely great dane doggies lent us this crate.  Wasn't that so nice of them? I'm very comfy what with my lovely home made doggie bed so I'm spending most of my time asleep. My tummy looks funny now as it's somehow become all bald so I sort of look half naked which is quite embarrassing but I've asked Ros and she said my fur will grow back. 
This is what the vets ended up finding in my insides while they were doing the operation. They decided it was the lid from a salt or pepper shaker.
 I was quite lucky that none of my intestines had to be taken out as while they were bruised they still had good blood flow to them and the vet people to be extra sure called in a specialist intestinal surgeon during my operation just to look at my insides and they said they looked good. Well I must rest again as the pain medicine makes me sleepy. Bye Now From A Recovering Jet.

  1. Wow! I hope you're feeling better soon! That sounds like a scary ordeal and I'm glad you're going to be okay. I guess you should leave the salt and pepper shakers alone!

  2. Oh you poor baby. Cone....crate???!!! We're happy it was just the lid, but you've got to be more discerning when it comes to treats. And speaking of treats, are you getting cheese and stuff with all that medicine?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

  13. Ooo I remember having to wear a cone when I had my "bits" chopped off - I kept walking into door frames and I couldn't nibble my favourite itches, most annoying... and crate rest oo its ok for the first couple of days cause you get to sleep etc but then it gets boring!!
    Sending woofs and licks that you can get out of your crate early too!!
