Naughty Pit Bull? How about a time-out?

Just kidding

But Veronica's CCL is still on the mend and we are trying to keep busy!


We could use some suggestions for intermediate level tricks that wouldn't stress her knee...

Champ only got crate rest with no activity except for frequent pee breaks. I used a sling to support him while walking. Activity only increased as mobility improved and never was allowed to do anything that would damage the artificial ligament prematurely. Scar tissue and calcium has to build before The ligament breaks or the joint won't "track" straight. All his PT was done in water for the perfect amount of resistance To build enough muscle to actually hold the knee together without the ligamenT present. Recovery takes a long time so you should not let her pain level determine her activity, she can blow it out so easy

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. This is our second go around with a ccl injury. 4/12 she injured her right leg - not very severe, but she definitely had a few days of limping a few steps after rest. Saw the vet, and also a wonderful surgeon who advocated for conservative managment. Like you we were very strict in the beginning and we saw the surgeon every month and he would tell us what kind and how much activity to incorporate at different points during her recovery. In June she had a regular vet visit and the vet said her leg had healed so well she couldn't tell which one had been injured. (we are also doing omega 3's and dasoquin forever)

So everything was great! Then August...we had a cool day and my husband had her out in the yard and she ran around like a nut. I'm certain she "over-did" it because she has always been a fairly lazy dog and she hates the hot weather...you can barely get her to break a jog all summer. So she ran around like a nut and came in sort of favoring her other (left hind) leg a bit. Just for that night; then she never had a problem, walks fine, no limping, no indication of pain. But...because I've been through it before and know what to look for, I did note that she was not fully distributing weight equally between her 2 back legs. You really have to "look" for it...but that's sort of what I do...I really obsess (it's a character flaw).

I haven't taken her back to the surgeon because the "injury" seemed so minor I don't really want him doing the draw test and doing more damage. I'm really thinking modified conservative management (sort of what we were instructed to do when she was at this point in her last recovery) should hopefully heal the leg, then I will build her up as previously instructed and hope this does the trick.

Same thing! Champ blew his second knee 14 months later. I opted to manage this one instead of another surgery. It would have been his 11th operation and I dont believe he would have survived due to his seizures. Yeah..he's a "lemon"! But his second knee stabilized and healed up fine.

I heard annectdotally (sp) speaking that the second back leg tends to give out within a year of the first.

btw; realized my time frame was off above; she hurt her right leg 4/11...because it was 6 months before she ran and it was almost a year later that she had her annual physical and the vet was so impressed with her recovery. The same vet who's advice to me initially was "surgery is inevitable, so keep her in agility and let her totally blow the knee out then have it repaired". Thank God I have an awesome state of the art hospital with competent specialists 10 minutes from my home!!

FYI: I got a request to make the video available on mobile apps so I re-did it and took the original down.
