Juice feels much better today. He is no longer whimpering unlike yesterday. He is weight bearing on his operated knee already. He hates to take a dump on lead so that's been a chore to this point but overall everything is looking good. I am going to start some range of motion exercises this weekend but dr Milton wants everything kept to a minimum for quite some time. The rehab plan I was given is much more conservative than many I have read. Crate rest and airing is about all he really wants for juice to have for the next few weeks. Looks to be a slow process but I guess it is what it is.
There are many surgeons that are ultra conservative in the rehab esp for home rehab as they do not have any control over what happens once the dog leaves their office so to minimize any problems they err on the side of caution.
I sped up the rehab process on my girl and the surgeon was very surprised at her progress but I was careful not to overdo it. I was able to keep her under control at all times.
If your dog is very high drive then you just need to go slower.
