If you have a tripwad that is missing a hind leg, I highly recommend that you scratch the ear that they can’t reach and clean their ears as often as you deem necessary. We used to use a Drs. Foster and Smith product but have found Halo brand Cloud Nine Herbal Ear Wash with the main ingredient Witch Hazel to be a more effective solution.

Also Mojo is getting his teeth cleaned tomorrow and of course we’re nervous because of the epulis.

Mojo in his new home In Colorado

November 9th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Life After Recovery

Mojo and I moved to Colorado to be closer to the mountains and people we love. We are living very close to Rocky Mountain National Park. I wasn’t sure how Mojo would acclimate to the higher altitude but he absolutely loves it here. Looking forward to being closer to more active Tripawds groups. IMG_0019[1]

Mojo’s Limping Problems

January 11th, 2012 · 5 Comments · Life After Recovery

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Recently, Mojo had difficulty getting up and about after a period of time at rest. At first, I had thought that it was his leg falling asleep but after a week or two I became concerned and took him to the vet.

After a cursory inspection of his remaining hind leg the vet could not determine if there was an injury to his remaining hind leg, however, being a Tripawd, you can’t really tell if he is limping or not. So the vet prescribed the following:

I already had him on Glucosamine and to continue that.

He was prescribed a half tablet of DeraMaxx 75mg (Deracoxib) as an anti-inflammatory for 2 weeks time.

Also suggested 1000mg of Fish Oil.

So far, so good! He’s quick to get back up and his hind leg does not seem to bother him.

Mojo’s Epulis

April 7th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Life After Recovery

Mojo was recently diagnosed with a growth on his gums called an Epulis.  An Epulis is a mucous cyst that is a painless, thin sac on the inner surface of the lips or gums.  It contains clear fluid.  The literal translation is “gum boil”.    Most often benign, these do have a chance to grow back.

He was able to eat fine but we noticed that it kept growing…so we decided to take him to the vet.  This is the before picture:

After removal the gum area looked like this:

Mojo prepares for Winter

November 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Life After Recovery

This will be our first winter with three legs so we’re just preparing and getting everything ready for some 3 legged snow adventures.

We just got back from Atlantic City for a Phish Halloween show…and judging from the picture, Mojo sure liked it.
