Max the doggie had surgery

Snapped a ligament and tore cartilage in his left rear knee. They put in a metal plate and resurfaced a bone. We have to keep him confined for a couple of weeks then he sees the doctor again to get stitches out. After about 8 weeks he has another appointment and if things look good then, we can start letting him run around normally. Full recovery might take 3 months.

 

He's actually happier than he looks in this photo.

I’d be sad too if the doc started to shave my front left leg, when the operation was on the rear leg.

 

When my dog had his operation, the doc told me to be sure he didn’t walk much at all for the first 2 weeks.  And then let him take short and slow walks. And

 

Good luck to Max…
