Thanks a bunch for your posting
Thanks so much for posting this. My Newfy girl has just been diagnosed with RCL and will be having the TPLO surgery. Your experiences answer many of the questions I've had.... how to confine a 112 lb dog! She's pretty miserable right now; she does not take to the pain meds very well. I've made a ramp for the car, so at least we can take car rides. No walkies for months and months, because of where we are, she can't get surgery until February, when the surgeons visit.
I just hope my girl's surgery turns out as well as your's. Thule will be three in March 09.
