Is your dog limping or refusing to walk altogether?
Anyone who has ever torn a ligament will be able to attest to just how painful it can be! Unfortunately, the tearing of the ligament in the knee is easily done when it comes to dogs. You’ll of course have noticed that they are in pain and reluctant to walk. We ask that you do not ignore this issue – not merely because of the pain and discomfort it causes to your pet, but due to the fact it can eventually lead to osteoarthritis and damage to the surrounding cartilage.
Thankfully, cranial cruciate surgery provides lasting treatment with a very high success rate. Contact the practice to book your pet in for an assessment.
