Murray is Recovering

He had surgery* on Tuesday to correct his dislocated kneecap (luxating patella, grade 3).

Murray

He’s resting a lot, and he whimpers and makes moaning sounds every so often. He’s getting around well on three legs for now though, and we’re looking forward to seeing him get back to his normal self.

* I did take a photo in which you can see Murray’s incision. I didn’t want to post it here, but it may be helpful to see for anyone that needs to have this surgery for their dog.

    What a lucky boy to have so much love and care coming to him. My dog has been recovering from something (different, horrible, won’t get into it) for the past 6 weeks and I just wanted to say that we’ve seen improvements in her health and demeanor each day and I’m sure you will too with Murray. Hang in there all of you!

    oh poor pup!! i hope he recovers well.
    our dog had that surgery when he was 1, and just had surgery on his other leg to fix a torn ACL. and now he has another luxating patella on the knee they just fixed the torn ACL! it’s not fun, we can’t decide what to do :-(

    […] I like the bare wood floor, but our dog Murray would disagree. He has no traction and has already suffered the consequences of slipping badly (he’s fully recovered now). Oh, and he likes to eat his treats while […]
