Country Max sells the horse vet wrap that works really well. We used that and a bag of frozen peas on Earl's leg for his daily icings

We have a small wrap around pack for now, I'm not sure where it came from, but it was in the freezer from some injury or another! and a canine knee-specific one on the way.
I didn't think of the horse vet-wrap, I have a few rolls of that around. good call!
Katrina - thanks for the info! The water up at camp is pretty shallow over at the islands, I wonder if that would work well for regulating depth.
We have a vet appointment for the drawer test on Monday.

I too would love to see those exercises, if I could. I just brought my dog Allie home from surgery #2 on her right knee. She tore her CCL in both knees and shredded the meniscus, so we just had that removed along with the plate from her TPLO. *sigh* So anything I can do to prevent another surgery on her left knee would be good. Thanks!!

What's the longterm prognosis for something like that?
Sending many, many butt scratches his way - that crate rest must be killing him more than the pain in his knee.

Connor was ok for a while before he re-injured, so hopefully if we are better and more consistent with his re-hab this time he will remain in good repair!!
