…precious pup will do fine.  If you browse through the forums and blogs you'll see so many large breed dogs do well with amputation.  Sure their recovery period may be a little longer than a small breed but they do recover.  My Leland was a 108lb Dobie.  He needed his left hind leg amputated due to a

Hi, thanks for the advice. Sounds like Leah and Bailey are in pretty similar circumstances with the same type of cancer along

…but hopefully our fairy vet mother can chime in. I can tell you that  many Tripawds here have had some sort of leg surgery on a remaining limb. The recovery isn't easy but it's definitely do-able. And yes they've gone on to lead normal lives. My biggest questions would be:

Is a board-certified…

…surgeon doing the surgery? I would want that for my dog to ensure against any post-op complications.
Who will the dog be cared for during recovery? Are you ready for it? There is a degree of care and mobility assistance required, you'll need to be informed as much as possible by the surgeon

…but once that knee went out we couldn't put him through a 3rd surgery within 6 weeks.

I wish you and Amber the best and hope she has a quick recovery!

…to the next step.  This would put stress on the remaining knee and it's ligaments (I would imagine) and you really don't want to go through a TPLO recovery on a hind leg amputee.

I will be keeping you and dear Casey in my thoughts and pray that her recovery continues to go smoothly.

…Shannon and Asian, welcome. I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with amputation, but rest assured, I'm gonna bet that Asian is rockin' his recovery and will do the same for the TPLO surgery too. I hope you don't mind but I moved your post here, since these discussions spotlight giant breed and

…in a week to stabilize the knee, since it will now have to support all his weight on his rear. Does anyone have any experience with large dogs and recovery? I don't know how much to push him or what to expect. Thanks everyone.

…tripawd Daisy tore and eventually ruptured her right ACL. When she initially tore it the vet had me try conservative management (restricted activity, cold laser…

….  The drawback is like Sahanna said--you end up with arthritis in the joint.  We tried that for 6 months but she ended up totally rupturing it.  Daisy is an 80 lb dog.

I opted to have lateral suture stabilization surgery on her knee.  TPLO is actually the best option for dogs Daisy's size but…

…tag I opted not to go that route.  From what I researched at the time the lateral suture stabilization really works best on smaller dogs.

Hope Daisy's story helps!
