Our dear Landseer Newf Memphis is going for knee surgery today. The problem is with her cruciate ligament, which has deteriorated considerably and is causing her a lot of pain on her rear right side. Left unchecked, it will severely limit her mobility. As part of the surgery the specialist-vet will reshape the top of the tibia and put a stainless steel plate in which will help hold things together while she heals. Memphis will have significantly limited mobility for the next two months and somewhat limited mobility for a month after that. She should be home from the clinic tomorrow. Her and I will be on the limp together.
Update: Memphis is out of surgery and recovering. We expect she will be able to come home sometime tomorrow.
