Hi, I can't figure this forum out and how and where to post so if this is not in the right place, sorry.

Anyone here have TLPO surgery on thier Piti??

My piti is a 2year old female. 50 #. She has a partial tear of her cranial cruciate ligament.:rain: I was given the option of conservative management or TLPO. The surgeon, who i used before and trust< said many dogs need surgery even after conservative management. My dog is hopping on 3 legs for 10 days. I have kept her confined. No improvment.:(

My experience with my own knees is that I tore my meniscus 2x. was sent to PT and it did nothing: needed surgery. a tear is a tear and it doesn't heal.

ARE PITI'S PRONE TO KNEE AND HIP PROBLEMS????

Thanks! :woof:

My 2 year old had both knees done about 6 months ago, and he is doing great.He runs like the wind now. I feel your pain my dog would go outside then use his front legs only to get back into the house.
