View Full Version : Coopers knee - 1 month update

5th April 2007, 01:05 AM
Well Cooper is now 1 month from his last knee operation. He went to see the vet last night who was very very happy with his knee. Patella isn't moving at all. Ligaments feel very strong and there is no swelling. He's really happy with his weight bearing and walking. Now we get to start his walking and let him spend time out of the pen - he went for a 5 minute walk last night which he loved! Also no more carrying which is fantastic.

He has to increase his walking over the next month up to 30 mins twice a day. When he gets to that point he is officially free! As vet said he can run, jump, play and be a puppy again. :D ...although I think that's all Cooper heard the vet say!

When we started this journey nearly 5 months ago I couldn't imagine getting to this point. I can't believe we're so close. Baby due in 3 weeks so timing is going to work out pretty well. Mummy, Daddy, Big brother Fergus and bubs are so excited we are almost past this.
