So what is TPLO and should I be concerned about my dog?

TPLO, or Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, is a surgical procedure often recommended for dogs suffering from a condition called cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) deficiency. To understand this, let’s break it down into simpler terms.

Imagine your dog’s knee as a hill, and the CCL as a rope that helps them climb this hill. If the rope (CCL) breaks, it becomes difficult for your dog to climb the hill (bend their knee) without slipping. This can cause pain and instability in your dog’s knee.

TPLO surgery is like changing the steep hill into a flat surface. The surgeon cuts the tibia (the bone below the knee), rotates it to a more level position, and then secures it with a plate and screws. This changes the dynamics of the knee, allowing your dog to use their leg without relying on the damaged CCL.

Your dog might need TPLO surgery if they have a torn or damaged CCL. This can happen due to an injury or wear and tear over time. Symptoms might include limping, difficulty in standing up or climbing stairs, or swelling in the knee. If left untreated, it can lead to chronic pain and arthritis.

It is important to consult with your vet if you notice any changes in your dog’s movement or behavior. They can provide a proper diagnosis and discuss the best treatment options for your pet, which may include TPLO surgery.

How well will my dog recover from TPLO surgery?

After the surgery, your dog will need to rest and recover. They’ll likely need pain medication for a few days, and the vet may recommend a special diet to help with healing. It’s important to limit your dog’s activity during this time to prevent injury to the surgical site. This means no running, jumping, or playing with other dogs until the vet gives the all-clear.

 Physical therapy is often recommended to help your dog regain strength and mobility in the leg. This might include gentle exercises, massage, and possibly swimming. Your vet will provide a detailed recovery plan tailored to your dog’s needs.

 It’s normal for your dog to have some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, but this should improve over time. If you notice any changes in your dog’s behavior, or if the surgical site doesn’t seem to be healing, it’s important to contact your vet right away.

 Remember, every dog’s recovery is unique, and it can take several weeks or even months for your dog to fully recover. But with patience, care, and regular check-ups with the vet, most dogs can return to their normal activities and live a happy, pain-free life after TPLO surgery.
