Help please

Hello I am in need of some advice regarding my dog's condition. My vet things he has a torn anterior crucate ligament and has refered us to a specialist. My dog is a large mixed breed and we adore him. He loves to fun and is very playful and happy. Lately he has been in significant pain ( we have him on pain meds from the vet) and we are considering having his tear repaired with surgery but it costs around 5 thousand dollars to do the surgery. To do this I will have to cash out my rrsps. Has anyone else been threw this? Was your surgery successful? Is your dog fully recovered from this condition? Any feedback would be helpful.

Hi, my Bernese Mountain Dog had a cruciate ligament tear and with restricted exercise (he had to be crate rested for 6 weeks with only short on lead walks) he got better. He was fine afterwards.

Thank you for the information, was the recovery time very difficult for you? We have not crate trained our dog so we are worried he will feel "caged" after surgery

While we hope that you will stay around on the forum for help, Forum rules do not allow for crowd funding. I know there are a few members on this forum who have had to have knee surgeries on their dogs. Hopefully they are able to weigh in.

Listen to what your Vet tells you. Have a friend whose dog ruptured her ACL tendon. She is not a young dog, and not particularly active, Vet wants to take a conservative, wait, see, watch and re-check approach. Any medical treatment is always all about risk vs benefit. Have your Vet weigh in on that factor.
