Absolutely, but I also remind myself it's temporary pain. I took a few days off work for both animals and they were spoilt absolute rotten with 24/7 attention and care. They had a ton of treats, stuffed kongs, frozen raw bones, and beef tendons to keep them busy. After the first day Delgado was back to his old self and I had to regulate his activity constantly, that was my sign that he was feeling fine I still gave him his pain medication on time each day as the vet perscribed and he had no major complications

At the end of the three week period when I took him to my parents for a play date with their dog he absolutely exploded with energy and happiness. We were all laughing at his antics, he was so happy to be allowed to run again

I hope everything goes well with Gabe and he heals quickly
