I don't often ask for these but if you could spare some good thoughts today it would be greatly apprecitated.
My Mom's Lab, has torn his right ACL. He already had the left one fixed when he was a pup. Unfortunately, it did not heal as well as we hoped and he has been living with limited functionality. Now, with the right one torn bad enough to warrant surgery, put's him in a precarious situation as the vet is not sure the left leg is strong enough to carry the weight while the right one heals.
My mom is heart broken. "Drake" has stuck by her side for the past 8 years. Been with her through two brain surgeries and other health issues. He is truly her soul mate. And he was Mackenzye's boyfriend
They meet with the vet again today to discuss options.
I'm sorry for your mom's boy. He will certainly be in my prayers.
You got it, Nikki. Prayers for a successful surgery and a complete recovery.

You bet!! prayers for Drake and your mom.
Good luck, Nik! Koda's left leg was only 13 weeks post-op when she went in for her second, at one point both legs had torn ACLs, so hopefully he'll be able to make due with those legs until the second one recovers.. koda was putting weight on her second leg 3 days after surgery, and since Drake won't be doing much walking for several weeks except to potty, he should be okay..
Let me know if you need any tips =)
