Today we dropped Brody at the vet to have his knees cleaned out. The process is completed by flushing out the joint using hyperdermics to introduce and remove saline. The platelets that have been separated from his own blood are injected to hopefully help with some healing of the knees. The left is not too bad. The right was very bad. He is not a happy dog tonight, he does not know whether to stand, sit or lie down, and found it difficult to settle for the first 3 hours after arriving home. We have also confirmed that the vet has the 'paper work' for the hydrotherapy, and we are hoping that they will respond quickly, so we can get that started this week. His next appointment is on Wednesday.
