I am just now seeing this. I do not spend as much time on the computer as I use to. I am so glad your little girl is coming along so well. And it certainly sounds like you hae everything totally under control. I do agree that I would not the sapy so close to this other surgery, and most likely the vet will agree.
Now, none of my dogs has ever had hip problem,s but my one golden, KayCee had to hae surgery for luxating patella at 16 months on one leg, and then on the other leg 14 months later. It is essential that they do not over exercise to soon and foul up the surgery. They get to feeling good, especailly when they are young like this, and think they can do anything. My vet said he had had to do "repair" to several dogs whose owners let them do what they wanted to way to soon.
Not a dog, but I ma just getting over a broken hip--Sept. 12. I was lucky and it was fixed with three 5" screws, only 5 days in houpital and 12 days in rehab center. I do have exercises I have to do every day to try to strengthen my upper legs, lower back and "fanny". They tell me I have healed much faster than normal, especialy seeins as how I am 67, diabetic and have osteoporsis. HOping the sme for your beautiful Phobe.
