OH my dog what a great video, thank you Meg, Elsie Pie and Clare! I've no doubt this will keep Frankie inspired to get back to 100 pawcent. Great song too! LOVE IT! clap

Oh no, Sally!  Poor Frankie.  I haven't been on for a while and just now seeing this.  I know how scary it is.  Remember my 80 lb Daisy blew her knew and had to have it repaired.

Like you there was no way I could afford TPLO.  Here in my part of the world the procedure runs about $3,000 with no guarantees and can only be done by board certified surgeons.

My vet has done a lot of the lateral suture stabilizations with good success so I opted for that route given Daisy's activity level.  Just had to keep Daisy from running wild for about 2 months -- not that she did that anyways 🙂

I will say that Daisy's knee surgery/recovery for me was waaaay worse than her amputation.  (Well you probably remember all my panicking posts here).  Not saying that to scare you but so you will be prepared.  Hang in there!

Lots of love to you, Frankie, Merry Myrtle and that big giant Angel Happy Hannah.

Hey Sally can you please start a new topic about Frankie's surgery in Hopping Around? That way we can limit this discussion to any questions you have for Dr. Pam? Thanks!
