ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries are a common orthopedic issue in dogs, particularly in larger breeds. Here’s some information on ACL services that we offer:

  • Diagnosis: ACL injuries can be diagnosed through a physical exam and imaging tests, such as X-rays or an MRI. Our professionals will also take into account your pet’s symptoms and medical history.
  • Non-surgical treatment options: Conservative management options for ACL injuries may include rest, restricted activity, pain management medication, and physical therapy. These options may be recommended for pets with partial tears or low activity levels.
  • Surgical treatment options: Surgical treatment for ACL injuries typically involves a surgical repair or reconstruction of the damaged ligament. Some common surgical options include:
  • Extracapsular repair: This surgery involves placing a suture around the outside of the joint to provide stability to the knee.
  • Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO): This surgery involves cutting and repositioning the bone to change the angle of the joint, providing stability to the knee.
  • Tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA): This surgery involves cutting and repositioning the bone to reduce the strain on the ACL, providing stability to the knee.
  • Tightrope or lateral suture technique: This surgery involves placing a suture within the joint to provide stability to the knee.

It’s important to note that ACL injuries can be painful and debilitating for pets, and early intervention is key to preventing further damage to the joint. If you suspect your pet has an ACL injury, it’s important to consult with our professionals to determine the best course of treatment for your furry friend!
