    Here is that elbow pad I forgot to post

    OK...so you took Rowdy out of the goodness of your heart. That was nice...but sometimes things don't always work out. Border Collies are very busy dogs, and need a job. Instead of allowing him to wrestle and run with Gunny....what if you work on exercising Rowdy alone? Does he retrieve a ball? Probably 20 minutes twice a day with a chuck-it and a ball...should tire him out? Don't count on Rowdy and Gunny playing to exercise them.Make it a job of getting Gunny trained, and exercised...and then work with Rowdy. Keep them separated as much as you can right now...so Gunny can heal up. Two dogs constantly running, playing and wrestling will never allow Gunny's hygroma's to heal.

    If Rowdy's kidneys are fine on K/D diet, then he should be o.k. . You have to seriously think of either giving him a job to do...or finding him a good home. Gunny will be calming down soon...and you will be able to get the hygromas under control.

    As far as the elbow pads...looks like it should help...but what will stop him from chewing it up? That's a lot of money for a chew toy!!!

    Improving

    WooHoo,

    Spent the $155 + shipping on the custom fit leggings and put the cone on Gunny and we keep it on him 16 hrs a day and in a week the hygroma has shrunk 30 to 40%.

    I will keep you guys updated, have a safe and Happy 4th of July.

    That's great news!! Glad that the leggings are working. Not much fun for Gunny...but he will survive.. The custom fit leggings are still cheaper than
    the surgery the vet would have done. With no guarantee that the hygroma would not return. Let us know how things progress.
