Cooper had his 4 weeks post patella op check up yesterday. Good news is everything feels really good and the knee is very stable. He can start leash walking and work up to nearly normal activity over the next month. He needs to sterngthen up all his muscles that have wasted over the last 7 weeks. The vet suggested taking him to the beach to get him in the water or we may buy a kiddy pool since he said a little swimming would be good too. And no more carrying outside for toilet breaks!

He went for a 5 minute walk yesterday which he absolutely loved. In about a week we can increase the area he is confined to when we are there so from next week he can have the whole lounge! And then increase it over time. We are a very happy family at the moment.
