Kili's hock has been doing well. We have been in a deep freeze so aside from agility class once a week we have done almost nothing. While I hate the insanely cold temperatures because it reduces what I can do, it has been a blessing as it has made it exceedingly easy to follow my own orders for strict rest. Kili has essentially done no exercise except for agility class. The class gives me a bit of a chance to evaluate how she is doing each week after having had full rest. This week's class was pretty good. She had a few moments but overall it was better. And I wish I had a video of her 2x2 weaves because this week she was flying through! Love the speed and accuracy we had this week.
Kili has finished her medications, though I occasionally throw her a pain killer if I feel it is needed. She is getting laser treatments on the hock whenever I can afford to bring her to work (if it is a slow day or I know I have a gap in appointments).
I also bit the bullet and bought more Back On Track gear. For Kili I bought their hock wraps and for Summit I bought the leg (carpal) wraps. Of course they sell the wraps as pairs and my dogs couldn't decide to both have hurt front legs or both have hurt back legs. So I had to buy a pair of hock wraps and a pair of carpal wraps. Money! Here they are on the dogs. I am hoping these will help both dogs... Kili to rehab her hock faster and Summit to reduce his arthritis.
