Hi everyone, I used to be on the nest/bump way back in the day.;) I remembered that there was a pet board so I had to come on and get your opinion. My 13-14 (unsure because he was a rescue) cattle mix boy has an acl tear.;( We took him to the emergency vet on Sun due to a severe limp on his back left and he was diagnosed through xrays. The vet told my husband that because he is in overall good health he thinks he would do ok with the lateral suture technique surgery. I am just so worried because of his age.
I have also been looking into bracing. The only one that seems to have good reviews is the A Trac brace by wound wear. It is 400 bucks though and you can's return...only exchange for another size. I was wondering if anyone has used this?
Also wondering if anyone has had surgery done on your senior dog? I just don't know what to do. I have been carrying him up and down stairs and my back is killing me. He is on anti inflammatories, glucosamine and msm and tramadryl. I would love others input. Thank you very much.
