Just wanted to get some words of advice for my girl Ella. Ella will be 10 on the 24th of February. She has had ACL repairs in both legs in the last 4 years. She has her good days and bad days. We live in a two story house and she struggles to get up the stairs at night (sometimes we have to carry her up.....we call it the "ellavator"!). She sleeps on our bed, but has to be lifted up and down. She is happy and loving and her wonderful self most of the time, but I know she has painful days. She takes Tramadol when it gets to be too much. Has anyone delt with this type of pain and injury before? I am so afraid of what this next stage with Ella will bring....I worry about her continuing to age and what I can do to make it easier for her. Any words of advice would help.....she is my first Golden and means more to us than I ever could have imagined the day we drove her home from the breeder. Love my girl!!!!!
