    I have a question. My dog Rudy had surgery last year, ACL. Then this year he had meniscus surgery about 3 months ago. The vet said to take him swimming so we went to the lake this past weekend and now he is limping again a bit and I am nervous. I hope that he heals ok. Has anyone been through this before? I fear that he will never completely recover.

    Is Rudy limping on the same leg as the ACL surgery? Also, was the meniscus surgery on that same leg?

    My dog had ACL surgery over 3 years ago and is doing well. We've had her on glucosamine/chondroitin since the surgery to build cartiledge and help with arthritis. This has made a difference.

    Do you give Rudy any supplements?

    I would say to give Rudy a rest from the swimming and start going slowly with him so he doesn't injure the area more.
