7 Weeks Post FHO Surgery

August 7th will be 7 weeks since surgery - here's a quick update!

All I can say is, you can't keep a good dog down. Sepp can still leap for his toy. Maybe not as high as before - but maybe in a year that will be a different story.

As far as meds go, he is still on vetprofen/tramadol only, 2x a day. Stopping the gabapentin didn't seem to make a big difference. I'm not sorry I gave him the gabapentin, but I'm not really sure that it did much of anything, other than make me feel better.


  1. Yay Sepp! He looks great, and as always, so happy!


    1. He's such a goober, since this video we've played a few other games that involve jumping and he can jump just as high as before the surgery! We still have a long road to recovery, but I think he's starting to get some muscle mass back in his leg. We've started doing some normal activities, like this game, and also playing ball.

      Thanks for checking in! Hope your girl is still doing alright - I definitely expect an update if/when you go for surgery in the fall!

    2. So glad he's doing well! It's been a rough road for you both, but you're getting there! Go Sepp! :)

      Daisy's hanging in there! I will absolutely keep you informed of her progress. Her surgery date will be her before we know it!

      Take care, Robbie
