Thread: Lilly and elbow dysplasia

    Lilly is much better today keeping her confined more seems to be helping alot.....That and the arnica- love the stuff ( oh and on the outside of the elbow there is no open wounds, it was all done from the inside)........She isnt as stressed with the stretches/physio, and has a better range of movement today. And the clipper rash isnt annoying her at all now............She is such a gd patient, not whinging or anything being in her pen...but then with the amount of toys and treats etc she has why would she???

    Funny, I live so far from a beach with waves, I did not even think of that kinda beach
    Yes no worries. I didnt do hydrotherapy either as there is nothing like that near where I live and I wouldnt have chosen too anyway.

    With my dogs second TPLO I kept her strictly confined for 6 weeks. Just trips outside to do her business. Getting in and out of cars was not an option - too risky. If I did have to put her in a car I lifted her in very carefully and I crated her securely. With her first leg she didnt limp and I think I did too much with her to be honest and rushed, with her second she tippy toed for awhile and I was very strict with her confinement and that was the leg she healed fastest on in the end.

    The screws and plates that hold the bones together are pretty strong but if something goes wrong and the bone splits at the screw the results are catastrophic. Having seen this happen to a friends dog when it had slight fall early on is the reason I wont do anything untill the bone is healed. This is not common but it can happen in certain dogs.

    A good place to get rehab advice is on the yahoo orthodogs group

    Hi Everybody, please for advice
    My Australian Shepherd is a year and a half and lame and left-paw six months already, 3 times we did X-trays and they can not see whast the problem. Now vets send us a 3d scanner. Maybe next week we will go. But three days since she started to limp with his right paw and lots of it. You know good VET in ED in Europe and what is better arthroscopic or surgery.
    Thank you Regards Vessi

    I am so sad to hear about your dog, vessi8.

    Most of us here are Australian so have no idea about vets and specialists in Europe.

    Agility people often know good specialists and there is a bulgarian facebook page for them here.
    Agility Club Bulgaria | Facebook

    Maybe you could ask them.

    Note to all - this is an old thread.
