I've asked three different vets if Molly can return to the field. My vet said no, one specialist said she shouldn't (that was before the surgery) and the other specialist (post op check-up) said "Why not?". I have to take her back for one last checkup in March and will ask again. But what do you guys think? I'm almost certain this happened because I let her jump on and off the bed, but I can't be totally sure. She gets around fine, runs around and wrestles with the Lab, but not for long times. She's fine running and walking, but doesn't sit for any length of time. She'll be 8 in June and before I would enter her in a Hunt Test I would get more weight off of her and increase her exercise. Am I being selfish because I REALLY want her MHH? The dog LOVES to chase bunnies. And I really miss being out in the field with all the hounds. Let me know what YOU would do. Thank you!! Belinda.
