Our Big Brown Dog Edgar had to have surgery yesterday. Our mellow boy, who loves to race like a greyhound (which he is partially), and who loves to check everything out had to have knee surgery. For the next four months he will have to just chill. It's a good thing it's winter because he prefers the couch in the winter. By the time the early warming sun of late February comes around he will be able to do his favorite thing...sunbathe.
To quote the vet, Edgar had a "complete decompensation to the left crainial cruciate ligament and a significant tear to the medial meniscus." Roughly translated, a torn knee ligament and torn cushion in the knee.
