I am not certain if this is an emergency situation.
My 4 y/o frug (french bull x pug) had TPLO on July 25/18. We have been babying him, perhaps even more than most, since his surgery - confined area, no playing, running, jumping, incline, stairs. We have been following our surgeon's instructions 110% and have been with him 24/7. He is using the leg very well and has even just started aqua therapy.
To cut to the chase, there has been a tiny slip up tonight. Somehow for the first time tonight, one of the couches was left partially uncovered and we found Boomer curled up on it (he would have been there for about 2 minutes at the very most).
The couch is about 16 inches from the floor and Boomer is quite a bit bigger/taller than you would imagine his mix to be.
I removed him from the couch, and it has been about 30-40 minutes - he has not shown any signs of pain. No limping or lameness, no leg lifting, etc. He appears to be exactly the same as he was before the incident. He asked me to go outside, I took him out (leashed and controlled, of course) and there were no signs of change in how he has been getting around. He did NOT jump back off the couch as I noticed him before he could.
Obviously I feel terrible that this has happened and I can't believe it actually did, but I want to know if it is worth a visit to the emergency vet. It is 11:30 PM so our regular vet is not open. I am feeling quite panicked over this but do not want to overly freak out if it is not necessary.
Thank you for reading
