Hi this is Dr. Michelle. I will see if I can help. I live in a rural area too so I understand what you mean about doctor visits. Most of the time, we teach owners to do the physical therapy at home. There may be some youtube videos to help as well for knee physical therapy. I assume he is still limping, or just with exercise?
Good Morning. Is Popeye on any anti-inflammatory and or glucosamine? and how long ago was the surgery?
Thank you for your reply. I think he may need more imaging before opening up the knee to have a look. Sometimes a CT scan or MRI can be helpful because it is 3 dimensional rather than just flat films that may not show where the problem is-whether a problem with the surgery, or something else. Is there any hardware in there? If so, there may be rejection going on. Is it possible for further imaging?
