Torn ACL in 9y/o sheltie

Post by Richie » Wed Jan 23, 2019 11:07 pm

Greetings everyone. This is my first post and I’m grateful the administrators let me post right away.
We have two 9 yr old shelties (brother & sister). Cleo (female) tore her rear ACL last week, and we have an appointment in 2 weeks to see a surgeon. I understand that more tests will be done to verify the injury, but so far the diagnosis appears correct.

Any suggestions re post operative care from owners who’ve gone through this would be greatly appreciated. I’ve downloaded reams of material from various websites, but I’ve also found that experiences from other owners can be invaluable.
Thank you in advance for any nuggets of info you can share.


Dr. Rich Laban
