Re: Knee Surgery - Yes or no?

I waited to schedule surgery until the week of Christmas so i could be home for a few weeks (vacation time). This coming Monday will be 3 weeks after surgery. We went with TTA on both knees. Nelle walked out of the hospital on her own Christmas Day just 3 days after surgery. At 3 weeks i can barely ...

Re: Knee Surgery - Yes or no?

Our vet suggest SSL, 1 leg at a time. I like our vet but i cant say i have 100% confidence in him. Not that hes done anything wrong just that i haven't had any situation or set of circumstances that give me a reason to champion him. Anyone can be nice and hand out medication is my point. The special...

Re: Knee Surgery - Yes or no?

Finally made it to the "Specialty Clinic" near us in Illinois. They are recommending TPLO Surgery on both knees. Apx $7000 ($3500 each). This is right in the middle of the national average of $2500-4500. A friend of mine on Long Island is spending $4300 for one knee this week for his dog. ...

Knee Surgery - Yes or no?

Nelle is a fast runner. Since 8 or 9 months old (almost 2 now) she has been blowing 1 knee or the other out every couple of months. The limping usually stops 3 or 4 days after the injury. It happened in Florida while out of town earlier this year so we took her to the Vet. She screamed so loud when ...

Re: 18 mo. old pup & already needs 2 new knees

I feel for you. Our rescue pup nelle is about 16 months and she constantly blows her rear knees out running too fast. Her litter mate does the same thing and shes had surgery on both legs. Nelle hurt her left knee then just as it seemed healed up for a week we let her back in the yard and she blows ...

histiocytoma - how long do i wait before opting for surgery?

About 4 weeks ago i noticed a small red oval shaped mark on (nelle) my dogs leg. It looked almost like a burn mark. Initially i thought it might be from Kaner dragging her across the carpet causing a rug burn. When they play tug of war and nelle gets tired she will just lay down but not let go so he...

Re: Hey guys

I'm purely speaking of supply and demand. Those responsible home owners could be saving dogs from euthanasia. As responsible fans of the breed i would think that legitimate breeders would be even less likely to continue breeding them knowing how out of control the situation is. So its like you guys ...

Hey guys

I would wager that legitimate breeders are responsible for an equal share of dead shelter dogs. Who in their right mind would breed a single dog knowing how many there are being euthanized every day.
