Nope. Good news I did finally get her to eat chicken breast from the store and a little bit of cheese but she is not eating any of the wet canned food nor the kibble. She has not pooped since Thursday and I tried feeding pumpkin she was not having any of it. I hate to have to take her to the vet so that they can give her an enema. She eats twice a day but has very little movement. Is this something to worry about? Do I wait a little longer

I am happy to report Miya finally started eating her regular food last week. She is doing well. Wanting to race with her chum Kashi. I just can't wait until I do not have to keep her penned anymore apparently they have to rest for 8 weeks before exercise can start. I read that this ACL surgery can take from 2 months to 12 months to heal.

So glad to hear that Miya is finally eating and on the mend. I was worried about her not eating but sounds like all is good now.

Glad she is getting better! Hang in there. I know how hard it is. Fred was confined for 3 months...

Wow three months. Vet said only 8 weeks then slowly let her move around. Hard to keep a dog down especially when you have two. Miya is definitely feeling better and has started her walks but I hope that limb will prevent her from limping eventually

I am now worried about kashi. I took them for a nail cut and when I returned from the pet store I guided him out of the edge with a leash and he hurt his hind leg. He is now limping. I gave him some metcalm and I am hoping I don't have to take him to Vet for Xrays as he is limping. Please everyone say a prayer for him?

Only just read this whole thread; you POOR thing, you and your dogs really have been through it, I'm SO sorry. I had two years of gruesome illness with my first dog, a Coton called Pamba. So I know a bit about how awful it is to be coping with helpless, sick little creatures - you feel so impotent and helpless yourself, don't you. Pamba's illness was nothing whatsoever to do with what you are going through, but the coping with it was probably not that different. Lots of thoughts with you, and I do so hope Kashi is alright. Keep us all posted.
