It took a while for the bump on Zeus' leg to go away. The surgeon believes it was fluid build up and was making it uncomfortable for him to move it which is why he had troubles with it. Thankfully it went away and he started to toe touch more and slowly put more weight on it.
It has been 8 months since Zeus' last TPLO and he is doing well. He is stiff getting up some days but overall he is much better than he was BEFORE the TPLO's. He can run in the yard and now with his new brother Cash. Before he had the TPLO's he wouldn't run or even try too. I still feel I made the best decision possible and haven't had any complications with his operations since. I did follow the very long restrictions of exercise to a T which I believe helped.
Today Zeus is very happy boy and I am giving him the following supplements:
Glucosamine - 2000mg a day
Chondroitin - 1600mg a day
MSM - 2000mg a day
Salmon Oil - 8 pumps a day
Chicken feet - I still give him these about once a week
