Customer Question
My dog just had ACL...
My dog just had ACL surgery about three weeks ago. We have working the recovery exercises but 2 days ago she jumped off the bed and is now limping. Could this mean she has reinjured the knee again? Would she need another surgery? I have started all rehab all over again. Thank you.

I am so sorry that Skip took this step back in recovery. Unfortunately a recheck examination is going to be necessary to differentiate a strain versus a reinjury related to the surgery. I would return to no exercises and doing the rotational warm and cool compresses as well as massage of the area until you can get into your veterinarian but palpation and potentially re x-ray of the stifle is going to be necessary to determine if there were issues with the surgical repair

Hopefully taking a step back, removing the exercises and resting the leg will allow Skip to begin recovering well again but the veterinarian that did the surgery needs to evaluate the knee to be sure. If he is toe touching and using the leg to some degree this is definitely a positive sign

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
