Elbow Dysplasia - Ulnar Osteotomy
My pup, a Swiss white shepherd has elbow dysplasia (UAP) in his left leg.
He started limping at 4 months old. He had surgery 3 weeks ago, an ulnar osteotomy and pinning of the loose anconeal process.
I'm really searching for people who have been through the same operation. I'd like to hear about other peoples experiences of the recovery and how their dogs are doing now. Today my pups limp seems to have worsened, I am freaking out that the op is not going to work.
We have one week to wait until check-up X-rays and probably another 4-5 weeks of recovery if it is healing correctly. Trying to keep a 5 month old pup calm and entertained is a bloody nightmare!
