My cat is 1.5 years old, 10 lbs, had knee surgery (Tightrope) to repair three torn ligaments on Friday, January 17th. She is still limping, but bearing weight well. She has great ROM.
I am very paranoid about every move she makes, because I have read about dogs slipping outside or hopping on a couch, causing their Tightrope to break. My main questions are:
My cat is confined to a room with no furniture, but still plays with her toys and "trots" around them. Is this okay?
Do Tightropes break often in cats?
How long does it take for scar tissue to build up and support the knee?
Do you recommend laser therapy?
(I have asked or will ask my vet these things, but I like to get as many opinions as possible! My cat is my entire world.)
