My boy Gunny had ACl surgery 8 weeks ago. The repaired leg is obviously weaker and looks skinnier than the other due to muscle atrophy. I might be jumping the gun here, but I am concerned that I should be doing more to make him use the repaired leg more. We are still helping him up stairs but he goes down once in a while on his own. We are only doing very short walks and trying to keep him from his usual running around. Is there something I should be doing to force him to put some weight on that leg for just a few seconds at a time or am I rushing things? I am afraid that he will end up injuring the good back leg due to over compensating too long. I have read about water therapy, but I live in Youngstown, Ohio and no such thing exists here as far as I know. Anyone out there who has a dog that has had this surgery and can impart any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..
