A leg for Louis

Update posted by Walt Wonderwolk On Mar 22, 2017

Louis is doing well. Visibly he doesn't have any more pain but still on anti inflammatory and anti biotics. We let him hop around inside, but it is nerve racking when he is demanding to go out or jumping on couches, slinging his leg around. He is getting new bandages today, the current ones aren't that tasty anymore :3

Recovering well... But not too happy about it ;)

Louis has been doing very well. After much hissing and groaning he is finally managing to hop around a bit without any visible pain. He is not quite mobile to roam about the house freely yet, but our hopes are that we can open up the house to him this week.

He will be going to the vet tomorrow for a bandage change and a check up.

I would like to take the opportunity here to thank all of our contributors for their kind and generous donations, words of encouragement and love. We are very humbled, not only by the support of our friends and colleagues, but also by caring strangers in the community and elsewhere. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Today we have reached about 50%, which already means so so so much to us.

Yesterday afternoon we went to fetch Louis. This time the little guy was very excited to see us! I never even thought he could tell different people apart. ;) It is good to know he might love us as much as we love him!

As you can see from the pic, he has an enormous monster where his leg used to be! He has learned to move by dragging himself across the floor, occasionally hissing at it. Poor thing is still getting used to it. Below the bandages he has a splint securing his stretched out leg, possibliy also the pin that was put in. very ouchie.

He is getting anti-inflammatory meds daily, pain med 3x a day and anti-biotics twice. Sleepy most of the ti,e but very bored. Physical discomfort aside we are very happy to have him home, but the road is still long to his full recovery.

Daddies are on standby :)

We have just been told that the surgery went well! They put one pin in his leg and stabilized the break. Post-surgery we were told that Louis is doing just fine.

He is a little warrior.

We will be off to pick him up tomorrow afternoon and update on the full procedure and recovery time.

Louis has gone in to the Panorama veterinary clinic this morning. The exact procedure is still being decided. More xrays need to be taken.. but we will find out soon enough.

Here he is... cowaring a bit. It must have been a rough couple of days for our puddin'.

He is a runner by nature, but he hasn't been able to run away from anything lately. Lots of love and soft words kept him calm this morning - but there was a certain "giving up" in his hunter spirit when he hid his head in his blankie. It made me feel sad, but I am consoled when I see him finding kitten-like comfort in a blankie from home.

I know what it's like to get saddled with massive vet bills. Good luck!
