    We are glad everything went well. Taz will not want to put weight on his leg for a while. We supported Jewel and Bentley with a towel so they could poop. It is very imperative no running, jumping, climbing, etc. for 12 weeks. Jewel and Bentley were placed in their crates at night and a pen during the day in order to limit activity.

    Again, we are very happy the surgery went well and we hope Taz heals quickly. --rj

    Thank you so much. It's only day 3, taz is confined to a small room and he just wants to play. He won't let me ice his leg and his ankle is swollen. I have to wait for my husband to come home to distract him while i ice his leg. It's challenging especially with a 6 month old baby. Credit to you doing it with 2 dogs. I bet it's all worth it in the end. Thank you for your advice!!!
