Sampson

Post by ZaraD » Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:52 am

Hi all

I'm going to try and hope this gets submitted , I tried to write this post several times the past few days so fingers crossed you all see it.

Ok on Friday I took Sampson to the vets as for the past few weeks he has been limping but not massively more like he skips every now and then on walks ,so I took him straight to the vets and after X rays he said he has a slipped knee cap also known as patella luxation, he said its not that bad and should pop back into place.. :shock: , then on Friday just gone he was not putting any weight on it what so ever so I went to the vet who said it's now become a really bad dislocation and he will require surgery to correct the issue.

I took him this morning for his surgery as his appointment was this morning. I'm soooooo nervous.

I wanted to ask if anyone has tips on how to help him recover , I'm lucky that he is a very lazy dog so resting will not be an issue.

The surgery went well and is a success, now it's just keeping him calm and a long road of recovery.

Wanted to let you all know he's doing well.

Wanted to let you know Sampson is doing well and if all goes well then he should be well enough to come home on Friday :D

I'm just trying to keep myself busy on here by asking questions :wink:
