Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....
Do you know what kind of surgery they're considering?
Do they think it's a torn CCL?
Is she otherwise healthy?
Did they do any x-rays?
Did they mention if they checked for a 'drawer' movement?
Okay...great. Thanks for that information. I just have one more question.....
What are your concerns about the surgery?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
It's honestly hard to know for sure what her downtime is going to be like because we don't know for sure what they're going to do to that leg.
If this were something like a CCL repair...then her realistic down time would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 weeks, give or take...it would only be about the first 2-4 weeks where she had to be really rested and contained, and then the rest of the weeks, she'd just be limited...but it's definitely possible they're going to get into that joint and not find anything significant, which would mean that there won't be much down time at all.
