    Default Surgery yesterday

    Bentley had surgery on his left hind leg yesterday. He has Luxated Patella in both legs, but they'll only fix one at a time. Last night was a little rough but, thankfully, Grandpa took over most of the hard duty. The "cone" to keep him from licking/biting/scratching the incision is the worst thing. I despise dealing with it and it seems there should be a simpler way. Bentley is so patient, though, and acts very meek when it's on, almost humiliated. I'm glad he doesn't fight it. Hopefully, each day will get easier and his pain will be eased.

    Hi

    Best wishes to you both from all us .Bentley will improve day by day though its a tough operation for them and there is a type of chunky
    soft neck collar you can get but its a bit late now for Bentley.

    I've heard of those soft chunky collars as well, maybe look into it for next time. I hope he is on the mend soon and good to know surgery went a-ok. Let us know how he gets on in the next while. Thinking of ye.

    Bentley sounds like a sweetheart not fighting the cone just knowing it's necessary for getting better. I wish him a speedy recovery!

    Tell me about this soft collar thing. Where do we get it and why is it too late? He'll need something until the stitches are out in 10-14 days.
