So my dog jumped off a ledge on a retrieve back in October and hurt his shoulder pretty bad. I brought him in to the vet and they put a cst on his foot thinking it was a bad foot sprain, 6 weeks later we took the cast off and nothing had changed. I took him back to the vet and they told me it might be his shoulder and if so, he would need to see an ortopedic surgeon. I am looking into going to see one and get his shoulder worked on, but it seems it is a ligament tear.
My question is, have any of you had a surgury like this on your dog? If so, how did the dog heal up after? I run him very hard year round, I guide pheasant hunts, duck hunt him a ton and compete with him in the springtime in Field Trials and Hunt Tests. I just want to be sure it is a good move to make.
