Hi, Adrien,

This is something you should really consult with your vet about. I wish we could help you, but every terrier is different, and some bounce back quicker than others. The vet who did the surgery will have a better idea of what you can expect.

Sorry I can't be of more help, but none of us are veterinarians here, and they're the best people to turn to for questions like this.

Good luck! And here's wishing your terrier a quick recovery!

Jane
