Mayday hurt his knee running and playing in an open field all by himself. We started laser therapy immediately, along with a holistic regime that lasted eight weeks. While the therapy seemed to be helping, we decided to go ahead with the TPLO surgery. Dr. Salas had performed TPLO surgery previously on two of our other rescue dogs (both were double knee surgery candidates).
However, this time Mayday was already walking on the new knee the next day. Upon our followup 10 days later, the scar from the surgery is really healing well with no more bruising or swelling. If you have to have knee surgery on your dog, don’t mess around. The TPLO procedure by Dr. Salas is the only way to go. Also, definitely do the laser therapy.
