Luxating Patella Surgery: Round 2

Well, here we go again…  Bailey and my two other dogs like to go crazy whenever someone comes over.  About a week ago I had a couple of buddies coming over to watch the fights.  When they got here the dogs saw them out the front window and all three of them jumped off the couch and sprinted to the front door.  We have hardwood floors and, unfortunately, while slipping and sliding on the way to the door Bailey hurt her back right leg.  We knew that this would eventually happen, but after a year and half with no issues we figured we may be okay after all.  The Cosequin we give the dogs seemed to be helping a lot.  Anyways, its a week later and I can tell she is in some pain.  When she tries to run now she will just stop and sometimes she will hold up the leg for a few seconds.  I called and set up an appointment with the vet to be seen on Friday and I guess we will go from there.  I’ll try to do a better job of updating the blog this time around.  I’m mad at myself because I don’t really remember the timeline anymore for her stages of recovery, but I am a lot more optimistic this time around after seeing the results of the last surgery.  More to come…
