I'm here to say that I understand you. You and I, we're legit dog people. That's why you're reading this blog post.
I remember how I felt when my dog first injured his CCL. There was always a smoldering, underlying worry about my dog before and after he had surgery. Do you know why? It's because all of the reading and researching I did was never enough. For every answer I received, I had a new question to ask.
I didn't know what I didn't know.
And that's HUGE. How do you learn those things? You figure it out by going through it. The problem is that you want to get things figured out now. You don't have time to waste, and you certainly don't want to learn the hard way by making mistakes. I get it, and that's where I can help.
My dog had two TPLO's. I'll get you through the hard stuff. I'll save you the time of having to sort through the biased and sometimes inaccurate info that's being thrown around online. I'll help you get to the bottom of things so you'll feel better about the decisions you're about to make for your dog.
There's a lot of misconception out there. Helping your dog deal with a torn CCL conservatively isn't rocket science. Going through a post-surgical recovery with your dog isn't as difficult as you might think. Can you do it if you live alone? Yes. How about if you live in a small apartment with stairs? Yes, you can do it, too. What about if you have a large dog and you're a small person? Guess what - you can handle it! No matter who you are, no matter where you live and no matter what breed of dog you have, it ALL comes down to one thing. Preparedness x 3.
A successful recovery for your pup has everything to do with how prepared you are BEFORE surgery. What's preparedness x 3?
So relax - you've GOT this! And if you don't feel confident that you're ready, come back to this site to check out new blog posts. Let's have some great convo here. Leave comments and ask questions because if you're wondering about something, you can guarantee that someone else is too. And you never know, I might just use your question as the topic for the next blog post!
