TPLO, remove the plate or leave it in?
My vet has suggested leaving the plate in after healing. I have only discussed this subject with one other person. He sent his dog to a rehab center and they removed the plate after healing.
If your dog has had the surgery, what did your vet suggest? Did you go with your vets suggestion on this? Did you take the plate out or leave it in?
Any vets that want to answer, what do you suggest and why?
BTW, the surgery appears to have been successful. 5 weeks into it and he is getting stronger every day. His limping is pretty much gone except after just getting up from extended sleep, he favors it a bit.
At this point the surgery appears worth the money and effort.
