My dog went through the same thing about a year ago...got one done then once that one healed he had to get the other one done. And yeah talk about expensive!! You should look into getting one of these inflatable neck collars for him they are a lot more comfortable for them. My dog just used his as a pillow!
Just wanted to introduce myself. I moved to Ft. Collins in August, and must say I am very glad to be here! I have a Blue 2005 TJ Rocky Mountain Addition. She is moderately modified: Currie 4" JJ lift, JB Conv. SYE, Tatton rear DS, Black Rock Yuma's (15x8), and 33" Duratracs.
I'm looking to meet up with you guys and gals to hit some trails almost any weekend. This is one of many reasons I relocated to the area, and I am dying to get out. I wish you all well (and the dogs above), and hope to meet up and wheel sometime, thanks!
