Cruciate ligament rupture is one of the most common cases we deal with at A30.
This dog ruptured both ligaments within a very short space of time, and found standing or walking almost impossible, barely able to weightbear on either back leg.
We performed TPLO surgery of both knees at the same time, removing a large meniscal tear from the left knee also, and stabilising with Evolox locking/compression plates.
Following day we were off for a (careful) walk round the paddock at the hospital, and after two days hospitalisation hometime beckoned.
We would like to thank Colin Whiting and all the team for carrying out the TPLO Stifle Surgery on Will’s Cranial Cruciate Ligament injury.
Will is 12.5 years old and had his surgery nearly 6 weeks ago at Penmellyn. We were a little worried due to his age, but since the operation he has continued to improve and we are delighted with his progress.
He has been back to see Colin for a checkup today and he was very pleased with him, so again thank you very much
