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

It is cliche, but taking this situation one day at a time is the most crucial element in staying positive for you and your dog.

We are almost two months  …… and every case is a little different  …… but, Charlie is doing amazing! We can feel the new normal sinking in.

I obsessively scoured this site for hours those first days, and while I encourage to use this site for support …… don’t drive yourself nuts trying to figure out every single “why” that crosses your brain.

Just remember, every day will be a little different early on. We experienced a few days in which we felt he was doing worse than the prior ……. so it is completely normal to have them. Trust your gut, as everyone says YOU know your dog. We were very cautious, but we also made sure we didn’t overreact……. adding more stress!

Rest rest rest ! Let them sleep. Almost all will get their same personality back …… act get back to all they care about – BELONGING TO A LOVING PACK!

Hang in there ……. it will get better!
