One Week Post Op TPLO #2

It's been a week since the second surgery and Ivy is progressing nicely. We are walking her over to her "field" on the condo property where she likes to do her business. The bitenot collar has been on occasionally, just in case we have to leave her unsupervised during the next two weeks. Her vet wanted it on 24/7, but it is just not going to happen. She is not paying much attention to her staples anyway and never touched them after the first TPLO either. She has been enjoying some sunny days on the balcony and getting really good at napping! And so have we!


  1. My dog Zeke is in surgery now, literally, as I type this. I am nervous as I read the Slocum article and then this anti-TPLO article which upset me. I am waiting for the post-surg report from my vet when she calls. OK. Pray for Zeke if you have a moment.

  2. I am praying for Zeke and for you. I am confused though because I am NOT anti TPLO at all. My Lab has had 2 successful TPLO's and if I was anti TPLO she certainly would not have undergone TPLO number two. Best of luck to you today. I know how hard this is.
