Can you believe it’s already Winter? With the weather cooling down, this can be a difficult time of year for some of our older patients as their arthritis flares […]

Jaime recently had a knee operation. She came from quite a way away because we do so many knees at Gordon Vets. All went well. Here is what her lovely owner had to say…
Her knee seems great – she’s full of beans and has a puppy like spring in her step that I haven’t seen in AGES! She must feel great as she wants to bound and run everywhere – we’re always holding her back!! She’s a lot more ‘bouncy’ in the way she moves so seems like she’s using the leg well.
Of course I would love to be able to do the rehab better, but she has at least one walk a day and we’ve been progressing like the notes suggest. We hardly ever see a limp after exercising (usually only very minor on the days we increase the walk or the strength work etc) She obviously still needs to build on the muscle strength as she still seems to find it a little tough getting up after lying down (but that’s the only time I’m reminded that she’s had a knee operation!)
So overall we’re EXTREMELY happy with her progress and the awesome work you’ve done!! We have a VERY HAPPY dog and can’t thank you enough for all your effort and it’s only because of your extra work with your website/documents that allowed me to find you!!
Kirrilee and a very happy and active Jaime
