lucaslavia Posted June 19, 2018 Report Share Posted June 19, 2018 Hello all, Couole weeks back Bob trod on something grim in the undergrowth and sliced up his front left leg - tendons, arteries, nerves all severed. Emergency vet was incredible, operated at 1am, and managed to reattach the tendons in a single surgery. They were happy enough to not reopen for a full orthopaedic surgery. 7 long weeks further on and we're nearly at the time to take the splint off. Apparently they would usually say 6 weeks for a tendon injury but given how active he is and the fact he's pulled his bandages off a lot it was better to leave the splint a full 8 weeks. Does anyone have any experience as to what recovery looks like from here? Vet has said to take it slow with 2 weeks rest after the splint off then short leaded walks. I don't know much about how it goes from there though - how much is too much or what sorts of exercise should be avoided for a long time? Any help or shared experiences would be really helpful, thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
