…as that really is the gold standard surgery for that type of injury. It makes the knee much more stable and, from what I understand, is an easier recovery than just a regular old repair. That said, Izzy was already an old dog and wasn't super active. The tplo surgery was also far more expensive then…

…to do the basic repair surgery which, in a younger or more active dog, would have higher risk of failure than the tplo. She did warn me that the recovery would be more difficult, which seems completely counter-intuitive, but proved true. Izzy had an easier time with her amputation then with the knee…

…repair and supposedly, the TPLO would have been a smoother recovery.

Cissy can still enjoy life on three legs, even with a knee repair, but she will need help with walking and going potty in the interim. I would…

…you have. I don't know how old Cissy is but that might impact which repair you should choose. The tplo is supposed to be a fairly straightforward recovery but Cissy will definitely need some help for a little while.

We are here to help! Wishing you and your pup the best!

…ll have the least regret with in the long run.  Your girl has already shown she's a fighter with all she's been through.  Many have said here TPLO recovery is worse than amputation recovery.  Your girl may well surprise you!  Keep us posted, we're here to support you in whatever decision you make!

…to do. He has a YouTube channel that you can check out. It's called "Murphy the Three Legged Dog". We did a fairly good job of following his recovery. Some of the videos were lost due to a glitch with YouTube, but the majority of them are still there.

All told, Murph was on leash restriction

… we've had numerous members' dogs go through surgery on a remaining limb. Here's a post we wrote about it a while back:

Remaining Limb Surgery Recovery for Tripawds
Cornell is a great institution, Ty is in excellent hands. In the post I've referenced above, I have links to the clinic where Murphy…

…well as starting a new topic in "Hopping Around" so that we can better follow along with Ty's story OK?

Hang in there. If you can go through TPLO recovery you can do this!

…with us for a month or three.  

I know that whatever route you take you are likely to second guess it unless yours beats the odds. 

I wont lie, recovery was rough!  But to see my girl sparkle, grin and be her beautiful self running free on three, I did the right thing.  No regrets.  

Brst wishes
