farm dog Cruciate Ligament Rupture
Anybody dealt with this with a farm dog? Vet is 99% sure this is my dogs problem (still need to do x-rays). Dog is a very active Australian Shepherd who loves accompanying me on everywhere I go on the farm. Vet is talking surgery. :no: The more expensive surgery probably has a better success rate but is very expensive and involves inserting a plate. The less expensive surgery involves kind of tieing the joint together. The expensive one is probably better for a more active dog but, this dog, although active is 10 years old. Anyone do either of these surgeries? Any feedback? Thanks!
