Does anyone have experience with ACL surgery or thrust knees?
Hi....I am an owner of a 2 and-a-half-year-old Coton, Boo. Boo injured her left hind leg in September, spent most of September/October "down"....in six/seven weeks time she was back to full activity. Because of an (infrequent) clicking sound, I had her leg scanned. Two vets are now recommending surgery because her injury was a full all tear and there are signs of arthritis already setting in. They also noticed that both her knees are in a "thrust" position -- not having the surgery also presents a more dangerous situation if she injures her right leg.
My questions to the Coton community: does anyone have experience with ACL surgery on their dog? Has anyone else heard of "thrust" knees in connection with the breed? Would love for her to not have to go through the trauma of this surgery, but very torn about compromising her quality of life/activity if I don't. Any information most appreciated. Thank you!
