    Hi there,

    My 10 month old puppy just had elbow surgery including arthroscopy for fragment removal and an ulna osteotomy last week. He seems to be recovering well and doesn't even think he needs to rest of course! I'm hopeful this surgery will help him be more comfortable once he's all healed up.

    I was just wondering is there anyone out there who went through a similar surgery with their bernese and has any tips or could share their experiences? Right now he's on strict rest for 8 weeks, which involves hanging out with me in the living room or in the crate when I can't be with him. So far he seems to be handling it very well. Just wondering around what time others might have been allowed to start using stairs? I know every case is different. I haven't been able to find much about personal experiences and would love to talk! :)
