• Bilateral cruciate ligament rupture in a 65kg dog

Jagger was helped up to his feet once he was awake. He was a large dog and it is important that large dogs don’t remain recumbent for long as bed sores are a real risk if they do. He was able to self support for short periods once he was up. We started laser therapy and Sonivet ultrasound therapy on both surgical sites to promote early bone union.

He will stay with us until the owners are able to cope with him at home. The long term prognosis is still good, but he will have a difficult few weeks ahead of him  until the bone healing in the two sites is well underway.
