Mr Reilly is Home Safe

Mr Reilly is back home safe - a little tired but doing fine. We have tried to put together a little graphic to show what has been done. In his first surgery 2 weeks ago he had half of his big pad removed as this is where the biggest part of the tumor was. The tumor had also grown between two of his other pads - both on the bottom and top of his foot and it is the sutures between the two small pads that were having trouble holding. The arthritis he has in his toes have caused them to splay such a lot that they we literally pulling the sutures apart. What the surgeon did today was cleaned it all out again and removed any dead tissue and then he stitched pad 1 and 2 together to give it the extra support he needs while it heals. Sadly Mr Reilly will still be on house arrest - so no walkies for at least another 2 weeks.

  11. We have our paws crossed that it will heal nicely now. Two weeks on house arrest seems tough....but maybe the Reilly Mobile will help make it better.

  24. We feel bad for Reilly. First of all, the poor fellow has o wear that big sock to protect his foot, we also think that it was sting as bit and hey, no walkies for two weeks. I'm happy to lend you my wagon. It has a padded seat and high rails so you can't fall out. Maybe if we talk nice to your mom, we can get her to pull you along. We're hoping that you'll heal quickly and well.
