    12 weeks post TPLO (Torn ACL Surgery)

    TPLO Experience Our experience w/ the TPLO for the most part was a positive one. The first 8 weeks are nerve wracking because you have to try and keep your boxer quiet. Our Maggy is super energetic and playful to begin with and she felt like she was ready to run around way before it was time...

    Needed Orthapedic Surgeon In Southern Md/dc Area

    My Maggy had a torn ACL and had to have TPLO surgery..We are in Colorado so I guess I can't recommend anyone over in your area but just be sure the orthopedic surgeon has lots and lots of experience. That is the most important thing besides keeping them quiet for 3-4 months after the TPLO...

    boxer as checked baggage?

    We drove from Florida to Colorado with our Maggy and she did just fine. I think if you have time and can be flexible, stopping every few hours at rest stops can really break up the trip and make it more enjoyable. You can take your baby to go potty and on a short walk, we would stop for about...

    Eye boogers

    Eye Gunk My Maggy will occassionally have eye discharge and I'll take a warm washcloth and wash her eyes out very gently. Also, there was one time it was yellowish and rather thick so I knew that this was most likely an infection so I ended up taking her to the vet and she was prescribed...

    TPLO Question

    Maggy had her 6 week xray today and the vet said that she is right where she needs to be at 6 weeks. The bone is healing, thank the Lord! We will return toward the end of January for her 12 week xray. I did mention how she was limping a bit and he said he thought she looked really good so I'm...

    TPLO Question

    Thank you! We will definitely go get a prescription tomorrow! May I ask how long it took for your boxer's bone to heal from the TPLO? From what I've read it really varies, some say 8 weeks some say 6 months! Good luck w/ your boxer and his hips!!!

    What are the chances?

    My boxer had TPLO surgery 5 weeks ago, and about 2 weeks ago she developed 2 growths on her back. We hope they are not cancerous :( She is only 4 years old but if you ask if she is worth it we would definitely say YES!! Every day with her is precious to us! She truly enriches our lives :) We...
