Glad to hear she's had the surgery and that it went well! Poor thing, it must be difficult when you can't explain what's going on.

Oh and good luck with getting her to take it easy ;)

Hope she has a speedy recovery. I'm surprised there's no lampshade on her to keep her from digging at the stitches

When I am with her we take the hood off to give her a break from t being on. We do not have the plastic lamp shade style, we have one that looks like a airplane pillow around her neck. You blow it up with air, works great and she does not walk into as many things like with the plastic cones.

Hope she heals up fast and well, but how do you make a dog take it easy?
Not easy at all. I just keep her on a leash which really helps. It is okay if she puts weight on it, just want to avoid to much jumping and running. I carry her up and down the steps which helps a bit. Where I live we just let them out the door and they go running off leash. We have a fence system so they never leave the yard. When I get home my wife usually lets them out and they run down to see me at the truck, but not no more. We keep her in the house and then only on leash. About 8 weeks.

hope her recovery is uneventful and quick . My dog was under crate arrest for 12 weeks which made him very unhappy. What type of procedure did they do for her? My guy had the traditional repair his knees.

Abbey had the static repair, not the dynamic repair. The surgeon thought that was the better way to go but that is a bit longer recovery then the dynamic repair. The dynamic repair sounded very invasive to us. Our surgeon said no crate is needed just really keep her from running and jumping but as soon as she wanted to put mild weight and use of it, he said it would be fine. Our surgeon has done 17,000 procedures, 700 a year so I took his word on it. Our vet said he is one of the best in the area. So far so good, she is still holding it up which we expect so close to the surgery. I slept on the floor with her a couple nights so she did not jump off the bed while I was sleeping. So far so good.
