I made an appoint today for him to go to the ortho vet next Wednesday to have x-rays of his front left leg. He has always had OCD problems with that leg but the back ACL's came into play and after having both of those repaired I just could not think about a third surgery. Well he is limping after about 15 mintues when out for our walk so Dr. Johnson is going to evaluate and see if it is the floaty thing that still needs taken out or if it just arthritis that is doing it. I really hate to spend yet another thousand dollars or more but I am hoping it can still be fixed. Won't be as bad as the TPLO's for recovery at least. I just really am dreading seeing the look on his face when he figures out where he is going Wednesday because he Never Never Forgets anything. I am sure he will be thinking "oh no, mom is going to do that thing to me for a third time". IT will break my heart.

oh No! I hope it's just a temporary thing, not a surgery thing
Fingers and paws crossed that surgery won't be necessary!
Hope everything will be ok with Tankie.

Hoping Tanks will be ok and no surgery!
I'm sorry. I sure hope it isn't so bad that he needs surgery. Poor Tank! I'll send some good thoughts and a prayer.
