March 7th - Update w Video

Lessons Learned!!!  I really recommend the TPLO.  The vet isn't happy with Jasper's progress given its been 4 weeks and 3 days with the tightrope.  He wants to remove it permanently.  But given Jasper had to have the surgery redone to the open stitches both inside of knee and outside of skin on Feb 8th (no Hoodie lesson).  Also, the vet put a giant cast on Jasper for a week after that prevented him from walking.  Jasper is actually behind schedule on development 2 weeks. 
The video below is after a full day of increasing his walking from 10 to 20 mins.  He is limping, but he was very tired.  We are still comfortably forging ahead, but in the future would recommend the TPLO or minimumly just cleaning up the meniscus tear and getting out (like orthoscopic surgery on an adult).
