Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Do you know if Scruffy had a plate placed to a lateral suture (a thick suture in the knee) when this was repaired?
How long ago was her surgery?
How long has she been non-weight bearing?
Has she had any increase in activity (ie jumping off the couch, using stairs, etc) before this relapse?
Does her surgical site appear swollen or sore?
