Ruby

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Last night, just one week after a very positive check-up with the vet, our Ruby tore her other ACL. We haven't confirmed it with the vet, but she is struggling to walk at all at this point and is exhibiting all of the same signs as she did with the last ACL injury.

We knew this was a possibility but its still extremely difficult to see our sweet pup go through this again. We're hoping her surgeon can call her in some pain meds while we are still up North.

While I try to keep this space positive and happy, I'm struggling to be optimistic right now. My husband and parents have been so great at reassuring me that it could be worse and that she'll be herself again. But as I'm sure many dog owners understand, it's so sad to see your fur baby hurt!

Prayers are truly appreciated!

  2. Oh no! I completely understand, our lab had the same surgery on one of his knees and we were told the same thing that is likely to happen to the other. I feel your pain and know your frustrations. I think its truly harder on the owners. Prayers for y'all and hope she feels better soon!

  15. So sorry to hear about Ruby. One of our pups tore a tendon in her knee about 6 months ago. Luckily is was a partial tear so no surgery was required, but it was a rough couple of months for her and us. I totally know how you feel. Sending thoughts and prayers your way!

  16. Thinking of you and little Ruby!! I hate when my boy is injured so I hope she feels better really soon! Were you able to get pet insurance and is this covered - or do they look at it as a pre-existing problem?
