(Lack of) Progress Report
It's a bit worrying. I know the vet said Jake would be really sore for a while, but I wasn't expecting it to be like this. All Jake does all day long is lay on his bed. Sometimes he lays there and whines. You have to practically beg him to get up to go outside to do his business. When he walks the front part of his body goes straight but his back end leans to the side. He walks really slowly and stiffly. It's just not like him at all. I worry that maybe the vet missed something. Jake's still on the antibiotics, painkillers and soft food. It's just hard to be patient while he heals.

Once again, thank you for your concern. It's very sad to watch a pet suffer.
