My last dog had a torn acl and had surgery to correct it on a hind leg at age 7. Two years later the other leg went from stress and I had to do the same surgery. He was very high energy and not the greatest patient.
The water physical therapy was really great. So was sedating him to make him sleepy and keep both of us sane.
He chewed off bandages and chewed up his wound and learned quickly how to slam his cones into walls and break them.
Look at it this way, I had a difficult high energy patient and he made full recoveries both times!
Odds are you'll have an easier time than I did, and your dog will be more agreeable lol.
