My boy Bentley will be having ACL surgery Monday morning.
this is typical Mego. Champ did the same thing so we used therapy to strngthen his 2nd knee without surgery. The typical surgery fails at about 3 months so you are in a rush to build mucsle and scar tissue to hold it together. I found the best excersize for him was to let him walk around in the lake in belly deep water. the resistance was perfect and and he was able to keep it together no problemMy girl had surgery on one ACL and she tore the other, which we let heal by doing crate rest immediately after she tore it. We gave her a lot of glucosomine too. I hope your dog gets through surgery well. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
Yeah there's a few different kind, but from what i've seen/heard they are all expensive. I'm sure I could have had it done at my work (Vet) for around $500 but i'd rather an orthopedic specialist do it LOL.Holy crap! 4 grand? We paid like 500 for Helena's. It was the traditional acl surgery. I think there is another one that is newer called a TPLO.
