Yesterday Dr. Silbernagel operated to repair Ben's knee. His knee joint was congenitally at about a 29% angle which put too much ware and tear and stress on his ligament and it gave way, just like his left one did about a year and a half ago. Part of the knee bone was shaved down to change the angle to about 7% and a titanium plate and 6 screws were inserted to shore up the knee.
First they shaved the whole leg...
...as well as a spot on the front and a patch above his tail where the epidural went in.
It mostly looks bad because of the bruising.
But in reality, it looks AWESOME!
All of the stitches are on the inside the the outside is glued so there's no oozing or mess.
PS. Dear God, Bentley respectfully requests that you warm things up outside since this recent cold snap is mighty chilly on his newly barenaked leg! Thank you!
