Topi was operated on Tuesday at Eläinklinikka Morelius by DVM Mikael Morelius. Both shoulders were operated by arthroscopy. On the left side there was a appr. 10 mm wide piece of cartilage removed. On the right side, which is also affected, the situation was calm and nothing was done. Everything went well!

The beauty of arthroscopy as a method compared to open surgery is the tiny little wounds instead of large wounds. Topi’s wounds are dry and clean and there is no swelling at all. Another advantage is faster recovery and less risk of infection. I’m super happy that I chose this clinic to operate Topi. The entire staff is so professional and friendly! I was very well informed at all stages and had a good chat with the surgeon pre- and post-op.

The first night post-op went well. Topi was calm and we all slept well trough the night. Now we have to take it very easy, just the mandatory leashed outings. Inside Topi may stroll free as long as he stays calm. I’ve blocked his favorite spots where he usually jumps like the side table in the kitchen… Topi is using the leg well and shows no signs of pain. Sure he is on pain meds still.

A bug visiting us

All dogs have had a diarrhea, caused by a rotten meat. It looked and smelled good and was defrosted in the fridge but it wasn’t good. Loads of watery stool and vomiting but all are better now.

Topi is well. He is getting to be a pain in the ass and needs more brain work. It’s very challenging to keep him from jumping and climbing..

1st physiotherapist visit

Today we went to see the physiotherapist for the first time. We are seeing Kirsti Lind at Eläinklinikka Morelius, she is just awesome! So friendly and calm. Topi is very good state and we can now start walking! We also got so many tools for rehab at home.

The photo below reveals what Topi should not be doing right now. He was reaching for the apple flowers and I tried to take the cutest photo of him smelling the flowers. Things escalated in a blink of an eye… He has quite a lot fool’s energy at the moment.
