Thank you 3K; we'll give the surgeon a call tomorrow as soon as his office opens. He is perky and being his naughty self and also trying to chase rabbits (UGH). It is all done while hopping on 3 legs. Just breaks my heart.one of ours had a similar surgery to correct 3 ortho problems including the elbow.
she has a plate and pins however.
was between 1 and 2 years old....
5 weeks cage rest.
about day 2 or 3 post op she refused to put weight on it, lifting it up as soon as it touched down.
We called the surgeon and brought her in for evaluation. concern was that something had slipped out of alignment.
she was evaluated and all was fine. vet says it was just sore. she did well.
I would still run it by the surgeon if I were you.
