I have not posted for some time. I want to update re: my special boy Mr. Higgins. He is the guy who had a patella removal 3 years after patella surgery. He actually walks perfectly well, which is amazing. I do restrict stairs, jumping up and keep to controlled leash walking. He goes outside on a long line and plays to his heart`s content. (no fenced yard).
The mister will be 9 in August. His closed ear canals are being maintained on cyclosporin and weekly steroid ear drops. They are not end stage and he will not need ear ablation surgery. After 7 surgeries and lots of health issues, he is a good example of a bully who has had the ultimate in vet care, by a bully knowledgable vet. I could not have done this without pet insurance.
He is one very cute,happy bully and I pray he will live to be an old boy.
Bulldogsworld has supported me all along the way. Thanks everyone!!
