Our Newf Ruby went back to the clinic today for a checkup 2 weeks after the surgery on her right knee. The incision is fine and she seems to be healing well. Both hind legs are stable, but she’s favouring the right side. Next step is to get her walking, 5 minutes at a time, to rebuild the muscles in both her hind legs, and particularly the right one. We can increase the walking time as she gets stronger up to 20 minutes at a time. After 6 weeks, she goes back for a set of X-rays to make sure everything has healed properly. After that hopefully she’ll be able to resume normal dog duties like swimming in the creek and the lake, and wandering around forests with me as I look for interesting mushrooms.
