KEEP AUSTIN...STRONG! 🐾
TSBR Troopie Alert!!! Around 2am this morning Austin began crying and subsequently will not bear weight thru the hind leg. Despite medications given by his foster mom, Austin continues to be in pain and obvious discomfort and is headed to the hospital now.
Austins recovery has been going well, as we reported a few days ago, and he was seen on Saturday 10/20 for a follow up and suture removal/laser treatment. Generally his pain has been well managed and he has been asymptomatic with normal weight bearing on leash walks to eliminate.
This episode is VERY worrisome and we are unable to determine if this is related to the spinal instability, Femur fracture repair, or Pelvic fracture.
Watching a sweet boy be demonstratively in pain is so difficult!
Prayers up please folks and we will update just as soon as his surgeon and doctors have evaluated him.
