Buddha had surgery today for a torn ACL from playing in the snow. I only got to speak to the person in recovery. The vet left a message that she had to do extra work on his knee cap? I have to wait until this evening to call to get a full update. I can't pick him up until sometime tomorrow! I'm glad it's over and that all went well, but I miss him already. And recovery sounds like it will take a long time.
Glad to hear that Buddha's surgery went well. Had a boxer who had two ACL surgeries. One knee when she was a year old and the other at three years of age. The recovery is slow and you have to keep activity level low. Initially not a lot of walking, no stairs and crating when you aren't home to watch. Then increase leash walking over time. It takes many months and it does seem like forever but if you follow the vets instructions recovery should be complete.
