Hello and welcome to Buttons. Quite apt timing to have a buttons, as panto season approaches!
But this was no laughing matter for this family. Poor Buttons ruptured his cruciate ligament. His surgery was delayed as he also has skin allergies and so skin infection was a complication that had to be resolved before surgery could happen. This is to insure there is no post surgical infections.
The surgery was greatly successful and he was instantly more comfortable on the leg. He is now 4 days post surgery and already bearing more weight through the limb.
We are now guiding the physiotherapy and teaching the owner what to do. Its early stages so its all about hot and cold compresses and passive range of motion to keep him comfortable. We will update the regime again next week.
Mum has been a super star looking after him. Keep up the good work mum and Buttons.
