Hey everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I have been on the boards. Between a toddler, three dogs, my husband deploying life had been crazy. I thought I would post here to see if anyone had any experience with torn or torn acl? My vet thinks Dave has partially torn his cruciate/acl due to his lameness. While all his x rays looked great (hips and spine were perfect) he expects the instability is in the acl. We have tried reducing his activity, which provides difficulty since I don't think he knows what slow and walk even mean. I haven't seen any decrease in lameness, but as typical of this injury a lot of physical activity will bring on sudden extreme lameness in the hind leg. In the past few weeks I have noticed he favors the leg on a more constant basis. So anyone have any advice or prior experience with this? I have left my vet a message to see if he wants to examine again or refer us to a ortho specialist like Texas A&M.
Thanks, and I hope everyone had been doing well!
