Bodhi!!!

Welcome to the forum
Many people on this forum have had the TPLO surgery for their dogs.
I put TPLO in Search on here and here are all of the TPLO topics
https://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...archid=1283719

I posted to you in another thread you have on here, that our 11 year old Smooch, had TPLO surgery last March and has done marvelously well.
She was putting weight on her right rear leg/paw the day following surgery.
I hope this helps you. You can find her topic here:

My older lab had TPLO surgery when she was 5. The surgery went great, but like everyone else said...recovery was very hard for an active hunting dog :-( Listen to the recovery guidelines. The doctors told us that there would be a chance that she would have to have her other leg done too in a few years......she is 11 years old now and we have not had to have a TPLO surgery yet! Thank goodness. They will probably recommend you use a glucosamine/chondroitin which would be highly recommended. Swimming is great therapy when he is ready! Hope everything goes well! Let me know if I can do anything else :-)

Hi, just found this post and am wondering how your boy recovered from his surgery? Our Bailey is going in for her 30 day post op check tomorrow and seems to be doing well but obviously still favours her bad leg. Did your Golden make a full recovery and how long before he was back to normal. Bailey wants to get going now, though we can't let her - and recognise the Look you mentioned, LOL!

Smile Harveys TPLO

Hi my golden boy Harvey had TPLO surgery on both knees last year. He had the surgery 6 weeks apart, poor boy there were many times when I thought that he would never get better.He was so good at coping with it all and now you would never know what he went through. He is 100% sound in both knees now He charges around like a mad thing, I think he is making up for lost time. Good luck with everything.

Your boy

Your boy will do just fine!
My female Golden Ret., Smooch, had TPLO Surgery when she was 10 years old and did beautifully.

Follow all instructions from the vet and disconnect the doorbell and block the stairs and furniture after surgery!!

hello! it'll be four years in april since bodhi had his surgery and he's doing great. i want to stress to you to take the recovery period seriously. although bailey may seem like she's "all better," please take it slow. bodhi was wagging away, as goldens do, when i picked him up the day after surgery, but i didn't allow him to get back to his usual ways until 6+ months after; even then i didn't let him go full out for too long. that may seem like a long time, but i wasn't going to take any chances with my little angel. the surgeon gave me a list of exercises to follow, but i found a free booklet online that was much more detailed. you must be diligent her rehabilitation as to avoid the same fate with her other leg. it's no easy road, but they're SO worth it! here's the link to the website: Download Your Trusted Free Book to TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) Surgery and Recovery - TopDogHealth.com. bodhi and i wish bailey a full recovery! p.s. swimming is great exercise when she's ready.

I'm seeing this post late, but my Golden has had both knees done --- about 8 months apart. If you're on Facebook there's a very helpful TPLO forum ---- so much advice from everyone that has been through it. I still find it helpful even now. I hope all is well!
