The info I gave on here is what the surgeons office explained to me as "standard". i will know more once I take georgia into the office. Especially with our home constructed the way it is, and professionally being at a crucial time during program development it would be difficult to take a week off etc. if she can get expert recovery care and observation I can be with her visiting at night.
There is never a perfect or good time for this but with a deployed husband and 2 kids, this is going to be interesting :-(

Kelly stayed in the hospital for two days and this was ten years ago. My vet advised it was best not to visit as they get so upset when you leave again.

How have your dogs recovered? And have you had to have TPLO surgery on the other knee as well?
Georgia is a very active dog. She runs with me (races 5k's) and is an avid dock diver at the lake house. Those days are probably over?

As for my dog, he is fully recovered from TPLO surgery. He had x-rays done 8 weeks after surgery and it showed complete bone healing. In some dogs it might take a few weeks longer and are advised to keep exercise restrictions and leash walking for up to 12 weeks.
Your dog is still young. I really don't think her dock diving days are over, I don't think I would try to run her for 5ks anymore though. Even after completely healed, she can pop up sore once in a while when overexercising.
Nope, knock on wood, so far my Golden has not torn the cruciate ligament on the other side.

Smooch's TPLO was $3600 total, and we brought her home the next day.
If she has stay there for a week, but I think she'd be much better at home with you.
We did not have to have her other leg operated on, but I believe the odds they give you are it's likely that could happen.

Tomorrow morning we are going to see the Specialist, surgery should be later in the afternoon.
I am taking her food with me, and a blanket that I have slept on for a few days.
Prayers for a speedy and complete recovery are appreciated!

Hip dysplasia, ruptured ACL AND masticatory myositis?!?!

Ah, I'm glad to have stumbled on your post. Our Marlow is going through the same thing right now. Thoughts are with you and your Georgia.

Thank you for asking Karen!
I received the call that surgery had gone well Friday evening. Saturday I was unable to visit her as my human child was running a marathon on an island and I could not get off due to road closures. I called and they assured me that she was doing great, didn't flich when they removed the cath' and she was resting and had already gone to the bathroom.
Yesterday I was able to visit with her. We were both so excited to see each other. She made noises I have never heard her make! She laid in my lap for an hour while i rubbed her belly. The staff kept coming to check on us and all told us the same story. She really is not in a kennel, but a staff member always sitz with her and rubs her belly. Does she have them trained or what? She comes home next Monday (I am keeping her there over the weekend since we have a race in north carolina and can hardly travel with her.
Then its 3 weeks of crate rest. Any ideas how to keep her mind occupied?
