We did it! We took Olive in for her 8 week appointment on Monday, and she got the all clear from the surgeon. He said that she looks great, that everything healed beautifully, and that we can start conditioning her to get back to running and playing like she used to. We’re still doing weekly rehab appointments, and she’ll graduate on April 12th. We’re supposed to start incorporating a few minutes of a light jog/run with her and then do a cool down. I’m not exactly sure how she’s going to like doing it, but if we let her go from zero to sixty, she’s very likely to strain a muscle (or two).
She’s going to be heading back to the pet sitter (aka her favorite place on earth) next month while we get away for our anniversary, so we need to make sure she’s ready to play the day away with all of her furry friends! We’re visiting friends next weekend at the beach, so it’ll be really fun to see her playing in the sand and water again. She has always liked the water, but always been a little apprehensive, and we’re excited to see how she does now that she’s been doing hydrotherapy for 3 months. Although, at the beach there’s no peanut butter to work for. 😉
Thank you for following along on this journey with us! It’s been a looooooooong time coming, but we all worked hard and we made it happen! I can’t wait to share some of our adventures with you!
