Last winter our pup Millie tore her ACL. I have no idea how this happened (she just started limping one day), but knew we had to get it fixed. Our family lives to be active & Millie’s a part of every adventure. In early February Millie had her surgery. The vet repaired her ACL & sent her home with orders to basically sit still for the next 12 weeks. How in the world would we do that with a very active Cocker Spaniel?
The answer? Sedatives! Poor Millie has gotten a PB treat that surprisingly makes her sleepy practically every morning since. We’re now on the home stretch of her recovery (Week 10!) and she’s doing great. She’s not allowed off-leash until the end of April but is putting her full weight on the leg. Here we were on a road trip last weekend.
