It's been a while since I've been on the forum but need some TPLO advice.
Long story short, I was using conservative management for Bear on his right knee and it was going ok but then he completely tore his left ACL and has since had TPLO surgery. The recovery has been going well, but because his right knee is still affected they wanted to do the right knee as well. Initially they wanted to do it within a few weeks of the first TPLO surgery but I wanted to wait for him to recover a little from the first surgery. It has been about 8 weeks since the first surgery and he is scheduled to have surgery on July 19th.
Has anyone had back to back TPLO surgeries, Is this unusual? If so, what was the recovery like on it?

No personal experience but my mentor's dog had bilateral TPLO surgery and recovered nicely, she's still a SaR dog. Initial restriction then PT did the trick.


Thanks for the response!, I guess I'm just nervous that it's too soon after the first surgery. He's really doing well now and I fear the set back this will cause.
