Mylo- The TriPaWD

A young Portuguese Water Dog starting a new life

Recovery Week 1

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Mylo’s recovery has been going so well!

The first weekend and the beginning of this week were a bit of a roller coaster. We would get glimpses of our happy little puppy, but then within seconds he would be whining and obviously in pain. It was hard to watch him unable to get comfortable, wandering around the house- but we made it through!

Day 6 is when we really saw the turn around. He is excited to see us when we get home, he chases after toys, and he is being ornery again (just like a puppy should be)!! It’s a joy to see him inquisitive and curious about life!

We bought a couple things for Mylo’s recovery that I really think worked out well for him. Instead of the plastic e-collar the vet gave us we bought an inflatable one. His collar loops through it so it won’t come off and it is waaayyyy more comfortable for him to sleep in! We also went to goodwill before his surgery and bought some toddler athletic shirts that I sewed one of the arms shut on. It has really kept him from scratching at his stitches.

We also bought him a Bob-a-lot interactive toy. It took a while for him to figure it out, but now he really enjoys this active way to get his kibble!

The next step for Mylo is to get his stitches out this coming week! I think he is ready to get rid of those itchy buggers! Thanks again for reading and supporting us through this!!

  2. Great news! I’m glad Mylo is doing well! There are definitely ups and downs, especially in the beginning, and they test you because you can’t stand to see your baby in pain. But he’s doing great. I love those three fuzzy faces!
