Post op Patella


Pug #2 Yogi had surgery on his luxating patella 5 weeks ago.

All is going well but just the other day I started feeling a bit of resistance when doing his physio excercise (gently pushing his leg in and then extending it outward), his leg seems stiffer like it does not want to bend as much and it feels like it is "grinding" when I push inward. This was the original symptom that tipped us off to have the surgery performed.

Will speak to the Dr/Physio but was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and if this is normal. Our first pug has this surgery but his case was different and he did not present with this symptom.

Any advice appreciated- Thanks.
