Yeah, charchi,s 5 weeks post op, he had a fluxating patella in his left knee. Ive taken him to the beach the last 2 day,s now kept him on leash of course, and just let him have a few minutes walking on the hard sand where its a little wet , i diden,t want him trying to walk on the soft sand i thought that would hurt his knee. Just taking it slowly with him so he doesen,t hurt his knee. But the first day he had ever seen the beach every time he saw another dog he would go off his brain growling, barking and trying to get away to play with the other dogs, but it,s way to soon for that, today at the beach he settled a lot quicker, i plan to take him to the beach every day, should i use sunscreen on his nose and if so do they make ones for dogs? thanks guys-janet.
