Odis's TPLO Update

Went to the doctor for his first check up on the 18th and he seemed very pleased with his healing, how he is walking/hobbling. The bruising is all gone and he uses his paw more and more. He is OK'd for 5 min. walks this week so I am looking forward to getting him out of the house for longer than a potty break. We went to the beach over the weekend and felt really bad keeping him locked up, he didn't even get a grain of sand between the toes.
Here is a old picture from a beach trip, always makes me laugh, and reminded me he will be able to run at the beach soon enough.

Well, going into week 7 of Odis's tplo surgery. Had his latest checkup/x-ray last wednesday and his bone is fusing properly and he is progressing as schedualed. Took him to the beach this weekend for a night, and when his paws hit the sand he was the happiest pup I've seen in a long time. It's funny, the doctor pointed out how pigeon toed Odis was, so now he corrected his one leg with the tplo and straitened it out, and now his other leg looks pretty funny Oh well! Just to see him smile at the beach makes the surgery all worth it!

Glad he's healing well. I bet the beach was a welcome change of scenery for him.

Thanks for the update. I am glad your boy is doing so well with his recovery. It means more fun to come soon.
