Errr - Make that Canine Knee Reconstruction.
(1) The knee with stitches. The scar is the same length as my middle finger:
He's 7.3 Kg. The other stitches on his chest are where biopsy samples were taken. He has many hematomas on the stomach from sunbaking.
(2) The shaved rump, which they do even to short-haired dogs:
So, I'm taking 2 weeks off work, sleeping on the floor, to stop him jumping on the bed or the couch. He's not allowed to run, jump or play for 12 weeks
And, yes, I carry him outside at night as often as he gets restless. And it's been 2 deg C here recently. Brrrrr.
