Re: Luxating patella surgery - Tierspital or regular vet?

Hi!

We did the patella luxation surgery at Tierspital in Zurich. Our regular vet at the time would not do it.

Our dog did not have a cast, he stayed at the hospital 3-4 days and then came home. We could go visit once a day but they discourage it as it stresses the animal and they get excited and then fear abandonment, so we followed their advice.

When coming home, dog had to walk as little as possible for a while until stitches came out about 2 weeks later.

Don't remember the surgeon name, was a while ago. He was Dutch and very professional.
