Post operative care
A period of controlled activity is required. The owner must be advised that an edema may develop at the tarsus of the operated limb in about 30% of cases. In this case, the massage of the limb kept raised is usually sufficient to solve the problem.
For a correct control of the procedure, a clinical and radiographic examination is recommended after 10 days, after 8 weeks and whenever required by the surgeon's judgment. Radiographic checks are usually performed with the patient awake, because the required ML projection is comfortable and does not require particular stress.
For the first 6 weeks, activities such as running, jumping and shooting should be avoided, while short walks on leash are recommended.
