Bodie is going tomorrow for his TPLO. I am nervous, but I always get nervous about this kind of situation.

I just hope I have done the appropriate measures for him, rehab, etc.

Keeping my fingers crossed all goes well!

Katy had her TPLO five years ago, it even survived when she became completely paralysed in her rear end and wobbled a lot when she was getting over that... It was the best thing we ever did for her.....Good luck and well wishes.

Thanks for the well wishes and good thoughts!

Actually he is doing pretty well, doesn't have a lot of weight on that leg, but is using it as a balance tool. So there has been no hiking of the leg.

Now if we could just get rid of the ice from the ice storm yesterday, I would be happy.
Previously, I was using the paw safe stuff. No more, when I used it earlier this year, and after I applied it, he went out and ate it, and promptly threw up.
Spring time is going to look like sand dunes!

I have never seen one of those before. I think probably you should ask the surgeon what he thinks. My only experience with TPLO was on a 10 year old Newf in 1999 and she wore a cast for a couple of weeks. These days I see photos of post op Newfs with no dressing on the wound so don’t know if this is the norm.if so, maybe there is a reason for no dressing.
