Poor Maestro

A lot of weeks ago I noticed Maestro was limping on his back leg. We kept an eye on it but it seemed to be getting worse. Travis was afraid he would need x-rays so I called all the vets in the yellow pages to find the cheapest rate. I found a great little old man who seems to work with animals just for the joy of it, aka-he doesn't charge much. So we went to him and the first xray you couldn't really see much. He gave us some pain medications and two weeks. Two weeks later Maestro was mostly sleeping all day, having a hard time getting up, and had no energy. So we got another x-ray and turns out he had fractured his hip! Poor thing. So the next day I took him in for surgery. And for two weeks he did nothing but lay around and sleep.

Yesterday he got his stitches taken out and seems to be doing much better now. He still sleeps a lot but has more energy and puts his leg down every now and then. I can't wait till the weather gets warmer so I can start taking him out on walks again, I have missed them.

Oh poor little Maestro! Surgery must have taken all of his energy. He will be trying to keep up with Cason before you know it!
