our newly adopted norfolk is up at the animal hospital having just gone thru luxating patella surgery....anyone out there gone thru this surgery w/ their dog? how did it go? what should we expect when we bring him home tommorrow?
Mine has. First day or two lots of resting. They had a pain patch on her leg forst week I believe. They had a firm wrap on her leg first week, which I thought was great, cause it helped keep her immobilized even more. Either crate your dog or make it stay someplace where they can't jump. I was off of work so home alot, I allowed her to lay on my bed when I was there, and she knew not to run off. Leashing when potty breaks for 6 weeks. even after that, I still leashed her a few more weeks, let her have tiny stints to roam. Her leg is fine.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
