Haven't checked in awhile but just saw this. One of mine had a ST in December.
t took her about 4-6 weeks to regain full use of her hind quarters. She was
oing well until last week when her right front paw went limp. The vet believes
t is probably another clot due to her history. She was going to take an x-ray
ust to make sure it wasn't something else but her machine wasn't working. She
ill probably do one next week when we go for a recheck. She did say she cut

hing is though that both times her paws were not noticeably cooler or colder
han the others. Probably because there was still enough blood flow.
