My little terrier blew out her left rear knee and is having TPLO surgery tomorrow. This is similar to an ACLU tear in a human knee. It is called Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy. It involves putting a small metal support device to hold the knee in place and they shave the bones to make the joint stronger. We have had to wait two weeks to get the surgeon we wanted and specializes in this surgery. It looks like it will be a long recovery and involves lots of physical therapy. Fortunately we have a pool and can get her swimming after 10 weeks. Pretty nervous about this, but it is necessary to get her back to normal. Appreciate some good pet thoughts for little Abigail.
