My lab Riley just had her right knee operated on on Friday, and I picked her up Saturday. Poor girl. She's drugged up and miserable and last night was a long one. Very restless dog makes for a long and sleepless night. Anyone else have a dog that has gone through a TPLO surgery or any other type of major surgery with a long recovery time and any tips on how to make it a little easier for owner and mans best friend? Recovery on her knee is 8 weeks, with full recovery around 4 months. I absolutely consider her my kid and am very sensitive to her being as comfortable as possible.
