Preparing for Fred's surgery 5/1/12!

Fred is getting Patella surgery on Tues. I was going to wait a month, but due to travel for work, I have to do it sooner. I set up multiple x pens, crates and a recovery room. No matter where I am in my house, he will always be able to see me, with the exception of the bathroom! I wasn't sure how he would react to being confined, but after I set up his x pen, he was scratching to get in it. I put him in and he was content to just relax. He also relaxed in each crate and pen I set up. I put a crate on my bay window, so he can watch the cars and dogs go by Here's me boy pre surgery. Wish him luck!

All the best to Fred and you hope his surgery is uneventful and he heals quickly. I'll be thinking of you both and what a cool set-up. I crate my Bolonka girl when I go out (too small with Yogi) and all the others will lay in the crate during the day and she will rest in it at times, I never expected them all to use it.

Poohkey miss you, monkey.

Good work, Linda! I'll be watching for your reports!

My Australian Terrier Corazon Twinkletoes had patella surgery - and tore it up when it was ALMOST healed - it had to be done again - OUCH! That was a LOT of years ago, and I think the techniques have been somewhat refined since then.

Also, Corazon was always very excitable, and that didn't help!

It was in the 80's.

Wishing Fred and you lots of luck, also!

Agh! That's what I worry about. What did she do that cause her to tear it up? Did she run or jump?

Thanks guys! I will take post op pictures next week. I just cut his hair very short so there's not an extreme difference where they shave him. Plus, this way I won't need to comb him for a couple month! I scalped the boy
