    DefaultPoor bruised Bobbie but doing well

    Post surgery update for you all

    Took Bobbie in at 8am on Friday for her op. Rang the vets at 3pm and was told that she was still in surgery and the vet will call us at 4pm.

    Finally got the call back with the news that she was out of surgery and it had gone well. They had managed to sucessfully reposition the knee by taking a bit of bone out of the bent leg and putting a plate and pins in. Good news is that they also managed to correct the ligament damage at the same time so hopefully no further op will be needed. Bobbie was under anaethesic for alot longer than they wanted as the knee work alone took 45 mins. They put her on a morphine patch for 3 days after because she was in alot of pain.

    We could only pick her up yesterday and she was sooo happy to see us! The weekend was a nightmare without her.

    I will try and get a pic because she looks such a mess, bless her! Completely shaved from the bum down the whole leg and quite a big stiched area. All swollen and purple from brusing also. Poor girl. We've been calling her our labradoodle as her tail is left all bushy and she has a bald bum!! Lol.

    Follow up treatment wil be regular check ups/Xrays and hydrotherapy to start in 2 weeks time.

    Thank you for all the good thoughts - touch wood, but it looks hopefull for the future.
