    DefaultTorn CL

    My 7 year old female Lab Kelly has a torn cruciate ligament and the vet says she needs to undergo TPLO. I know it's quite an expensive procedure but the vet is confident she will regain full use of her leg.
    Can anyone share their experience with TPLO? Thanks.

    My girl Java tore both CCLs last year when she was 13 months old. She had back to back TPLOs, 10 weeks apart.
    Yes, it's expensive, but it is well worth it. The recovery is quite long too but Java is back to doing everything she was doing prior to her injury!!

    If you have any specific questions I'd be more than happy to help and answer them!!
