Meet Schlomo and his new life on 3 legs

Day 8 (this gentleman figured out how to pee with a leg up on 3 paws)

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

Schlomo apparently decided that this whole squatting business is just not for him. So when he got outside this morning he hopped up to his main tree in front of our building, lifted his left hind leg up and pushed it against the tree for support. I thought he was going to fall and jumped to keep him balanced but he was a-ok. Looking pretty proud I have to say.

After that we had our first check up at the Vet and the bandage was removed. I was worried about the incision but he looks beautiful and perfect. The Vet said the incision looks really good and that his knees are definitely stable. He does have arthritis, yes, but with him being ‘distinguished’ and needing to learn about his new balance she was not worried yet. And that we should keep doing what we’re doing. The acupuncture Vet will be here tomorrow and we will take it from there.

Slow and easy.

He is getting the hang of sitting on 3 paws too. Also check out the photo bomb in the second picture…

Much love,

Mascha & Schlomes

      Thank you Jerry!
      This is a moment where I aprecciate being in NY and that being possible. We had no idea.

  2. Of course, of course you figured it out on day 8 you smart little bugger! It sounds like you are having a good day and I am so glad. His incision does look good and the photo bomb is awesome! I can’t wait to hear how acupuncture goes, we’ve never done that. He looks so cute sitting in his perfect triangle.
    Yeah Schlomo!

  3. He looks great! My Otis’ first attempts at lifting his leg were leaning on (and peeing on) the house. He graduated to leaning on trees, and always managed to orient himself properly to maintain his balance on two legs (while the third was up). And yes, the incision looks great too!
