Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support! Life has been busy…husband in law school, me in graduate school, one in 3rd grade, one in first grade and one in pre-Kindergarten….there has been little time for blogging about my sweet Bubba.

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!I was a little nervous when I saw a message from the vet on my cell over vacation. The update: Bubba’s stay at the vet during vacation was a success!  The water deprivation study – to test the ability of his kidneys – went very well. […]

Bubba’s Vacation

July 8th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I wish I could say that Bubba is going away on a great escape…but, it’s back to the hospital for him. Our family is going out of town soon and unable to bring Bubba along with us.  He still has a nasty open wound, which I am cleaning several times a day.  We are also […]

I want to help

This site helped me to prepare myself and my home for Bubba’s homecoming after his surgery.  I am dedicating a few pages of this blog to the things I did that helped me and Bubba transition to Tripawdism.  I hope that the information will be helpful to others considering or preparing for canine amputation. Thank-you […]

Good News

A bit of relief tonight at Bubba’s follow-up, at last! Kidney function tests were within normal limits, but the constant drinking water and peeing is not getting any better.  Possible reasons include: behavioral issues with adjusting to changes, underlying kidney stress (early dysfunction), or medication.  The only medication he is on is synthroid, which is […]

Dealing with People

OK Tripawd Parents: Help Me! I am assuming that it is natural to be a bit overprotective of my baby, especially since we are still adjusting to life with 3 legs.  However, I am upset that some people make inappropriate comments in regards to our decision to amputate.  I have had 2 experiences with strangers […]

Kidney trouble?

June 14th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Well….no more injected antibiotics for Bubba.  The blood tests were within normal limits, but the doctor was not happy with the urinalysis.  The antibiotic he was on is toxic to the kidneys.  This is a double-edged-sword: he needs the antibiotic to get rid of the infection but the one that works best can destroy his […]
