View Full Version : Poor Gypsi !
My poor Jack Russell,Gypsi has to have an operation on Friday for a Cruciate Ligament Rupture, it's a worry as Jack Russells, (terriers in general) seem to be prone to this injury, my parent's dog Catie, has had three Operations-2 on one leg & none of them have really successful, guess it's the breed, they don't know how to be still for a minute but it's a worrying time, & hope she will be ok,she is my baby .
A year ago she was in hospital for a week with Pancreatitis, she almost didn't make it & it's an ongoing thing with her & her diet, & while in there the Vet showed me scans of her spine, the entire bottom half is fused together, he said it's extremely unusual,especially in a smal breed, & in years to come she will lose the ability to jump etc.
Just thought I would post this & ask you to give a little prayer for her this Friday,it's truly appreciated.
Awe you always will have my prayers.What a sin.

Awww poor baby my prayers are with you..
Thanks Ladies, will keep you posted as promised, she goes in tomrrow morning & I'm guessing will be operated on about 11am, so won't know much until I ring tomorrow evening but as soon as I know anything I will post it here.
I am ecstatic! Gypsi didn't need the surgery at this time, It appears she has a severe sprain to her leg & also arthritis, so she is having a course of Glucosamine injections & anti inflammatory's & needs to take it easy but the vet has stated that down the track it is likely she will need the surgery. She is a happy little doggy & so pleased to be home again tonight. :)Thanks to all who have been concerned for my sweet girl :)

Great to hear Gypsi is where she wants to be. Hope the new treatment works...........hugs Gypsi............xoxoxo
Gypsi seems to be coping with the injections, she is still limping but we hope this will settle over time.It's certainly a better alternative ( at least for the moment) than the Operation. :)

I am sooooooo glad to here from you. I was wondering how Gypsi was doing. Thank you for the update. Now the other question, how are you doing? Hope all is well. :)
Thanks for the concern about Gypsi & I. I am doing ok, had a fall before Christmas at a shopping centre(slipped on some softdrink & landed on overturned chairs) & hurt my back,it's sure been taking its time settling down,still can't move or sleep certain ways but otherwise I am doing ok :)
I hope this finds you well also,hugs

O Hazr.... I didn't know you fell!!! I know how them Back strains can Be..... Long and nerve racking to recover!!! Glad to Hear the Baby is Doing OK Too....Ya'll Take Care..... Hugs!!!
Thanks Kimmyann, Gypsi has had the fourth & last injection for the time being, now its a waiting game, she is also on anti inflammatory pills so hopefully we shall see an improvement.
I appreciate your concern(re my back) I have had a bad back for years & this has just complicated things a bit, more pain than before but nothing major showing up,it's just being stubborn.We sure don't mend as well when we get older :)
It's good news on Gypsi,she has stopped limping now,(back leg) I am thrilled with the injections,they were certainly worth getting over the last month.
Gypsi is a lot happier now, & even her front foot with the different problem has settled down,it's all good at moment :)
