    Hello everyone, first time posting here. We have a 7.5 year old pitbull who tore his ACL a few weeks ago. We've gotten a variety of recommendations from veterinarians in our area. One procedure that we felt was interesting was called a "tightrope" procedure. Does anyone have any experience with...

I checked her paw and she had what looked like a little pimple in the webbing of her foot, turned out to be a splinter. I did some research and decided to clean the area and create rest her...

    My 19 month old female pit has a slight tear in her left ACL (which the vet says she can see is healing and to keep doing what I am doing) and VERY MILD hip dysplasia in her right hip.

    Obviously I'm not a vet and I realize most of you aren't either, but I'm sure someone can help. Last night I came home from work and I noticed my 2 year old dog was having a hard time laying down and getting comfy. She would walk in circles about 10 times, lay down then stand back up. It...

    Poor Tempest blew her ACL out this weekend at the show. DARN IT! Now I have to figure out what surgery we are going to do since the TPLO is not an option. For those that don't know when you do the TPLO they rearrange the structure of the knee and the dog is no longer balanced. She blew it out...

    I am just wondering if ACL tears can be genetic? Such as, a dog has weaker ACL's that are more apt to tears do to bad breeding. Helena tore both of her knees before age 2. I have always wondered if it was my fault for letting her run and jump too much before age one.... or if she could have been...

    Champ blew his right patella and his left ACL. The orth. Dr. told me about a slip and crimp procedure to replace the ACL with a monofilament ligament that only lasts 3 months, is that long enough to build scar tissue and muscle mass to hold the knee together after the mono fails? Is this...
