Ivy is doing well at 11 months post TPLO. The Vet says it can take up to 18 months for the muscles that atrophied to build back up and equal the uninjured leg. He reminded me that there is a 50% chance of the other knee going as well. Trying to stay positive, we are keeping her weight down and her activity level up, and giving glucosamine supplements and grain free food. I would like to experiment with raw feeding too. We already supplement with raw carrots and pumpkin, it's the meat side that I haven't embraced yet.
Ivy has been quite mellow around the house, still loves to play fetch a lot, but inside she is quite calm. I'm not complaining but I do wonder how much it has to do with Baby having been quite ill and less aggressive and also now that she is gone, Ivy no longer has to be on the defense...or if it is just the her getting older and more comfortable in the new house.

I am very excited and proud to say that I am participating in Bike MS Columbia,Missouri: Express Scripts Gateway Getaway Ride 2013! I am asking you to Join the Movement® by making a contribution to support my efforts. My husband, Darrin, and I are both signed up to complete a 150 mile bicycle ride spanning two days in September. We ride to support the daughter of a friend with progressive MS as well as the husband of another rider on our team.
The National MS Society is committed to building a movement by and for people with MS that will move us closer to a world free of this disease. Donations collected for Bike MS continuously fund research for a cure, while also providing services and support for those currently living with MS. I am riding this year because I believe in the mission of the National MS Society. More than 400,000 Americans live with MS and every donation will help us find a cure.
Please help by making a donation or joining my team. Join me, and together we can create a world free of MS. I greatly appreciate your support and I will keep you posted on my progress.
