The inspiration behind this post is my own on the mend dog, Toby. Late last year he partially ruptured his cruciate ligament and it has been a long road to recovery.
An injured or sick pet takes a toll, I wanted to share my experiences and learnings. I am incredibly grateful to the wonderful team at Forrest Hill Vets and NSVECC (After hours) for the care they gave my boy.
Lastly, don't overcompensate. For the first few days give your dog lots of love and attention. It is quite common after recovering from a trauma or injury for dogs to develop behavioral issues. This can be from giving your dog attention and affection in abundance and on demand. So don't overdo it, try not to make his recovery too big of a deal. You'll thank us for it later!
