Hi Pennys mom will send prayers and good thoughts your way. My Katie had it done when she was two, rear leg. I was told to expect the other leg would need to be done in the next year. It never happened she healed up real well and the repaired leg never gave her any issues. She did have to go for water therapy about a month after her surgery, she was just laying on the deck and got up and took off like her butt was on fire and jumped down off the deck and reinsured the leg. Water therapy did the trick for her not cheap but worth every penny.Not sure which forum to choose for this.
Tomorrow is Penny's TPLO (ACL) surgery. We have to have her half way across the state by 8:30 thru some of the most nightmarish traffic. I'm worried about that too.
She should be done in 3 hours, I should hear from the vet by noon. I'll be sure to post. He's done THOUSANDS of these procedures so she couldn't be in better, more experienced hands. Still....
Some prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated. I do believe in the power of our collective good karma! Thanks.
Oh no. Can you call them and ask if there is anything you can do to help her pain? I'm so sorry to hear this and now I'll worry for her (and you). Penny, rest up, and please stop limping.Penny is limping today. She is bearing weight somewhat. I think she might have slipped in the snow. I'm a little concerned although the instructions say that if we walk her too much too soon she might get sore and limp. I hope that's all it is. She was out with me while I shoveled this morning. That's the only time she's been out. Only potty outs for a while.
