Lilly convalescing - post surgery

Hip Dysplasia Surgery Recovery

Hip dysplasia surgery is like all surgeries, a seriously invasive operation and carries the same risks. Both during the procedure and in the recovery phase, it is necessary to protect the dog and permit proper healing. 

As a result, our Vet, Dr. Rick Scherr, required that we leave Lilly with their clinic for two weeks after the surgery.  Being away from Lilly for such a long time - especially at a time like this was really tough on Lilly's mom, but she knew it was for the best.

Dr. Scherr explained that they used to send the dogs home after a few days, but the problem is simply that these canines fell so much better the day after their operation that they want to go act like a dog.  It is critically important to permit the healing process to advance before the dog is given free reign to romp and play.

In fact, we were instructed not to let Lilly climb stairs or be off the leash for two months after surgery.  At this writing, we are still in the recovery phase and treating Lilly as prescribed by Dr. Scherr.
