Thanks guys, I'm hoping for the best and I will know tomorrow. If the results come back with something minor the Bronco will immediately be pulled. But two Vets had the same diagnosis and both recommended X-rays.
I'll let ya know either way and thanks for the good vibes Bronco brothers rock!

Business is going good but could use some upgrades so not selling for that.
My best friend in the whole world is my Rotty Ziva. Found out last week she blew her knee out. She goes in for X-rays in the AM to confirm or denie this. If it is confirmed she will need surgery to fix it. That surgery is $3500. Yes I said three thousand five hundred dollars.
So to me no car is worth what my best friend is so if that's the case that's what needs to happen. I have my fingers crossed that her injury is not as bad as they think but I am preparing for the worse case.
I love the bronco but I love my dog more. If anyone here has interest in the package I'll make you a hell of a deal.
Thanks for all the cudos on the build its been fun so far. And like you said I can always start another!!
Hey Steve,
I understand you want to do everything for your rotty but I want you to see this. I work in the medical field as a an ER pharmacist so I know a few things about medicine, more so then broncos. Anyways, my golden suffered bi-lateral ACL tears (both knees) about 3 years ago. Like you I was in anguish because I could tell he was in obvious pain. I took him to the vet and there were 3 different types of surgeries they could perform. The cheapest at 1k was the artificial (50 lb mono filament) tendon repair. The vet couldn't get him in for his 1st surgery until about 3 weeks out which gave me time to do some research. I consulted 3 of our top orthopedic surgeons here and they said "don't do it" w/ one saying "a dogs ACL is not as critical as a humans because they do not pivot on there foot like we do" I also found this website http://www.tiggerpoz.com/id3.html which was super informative, and non biased. My dog made a great recovery without the surgery. I gave him a supplement of chondroitin pills with his food and followed the advice on the page. The key is minimul activity the first few weeks and then gradual build upon that. The scar tissue from the injury will eventualy build and stabilize that joint. The vets will worry you about "arthritis" BUT all dogs will eventually develop arthritis if they live long enough. I'm not trying to be cold hearted or a cynic of vets but just thought you should know there are other options out there! hope this helps!

Ok the specialist that looked at my Rotty says DO NOT DO SURGERY at this time. Rest and some medications should do it, but if she stuffs her leg in a hole or some fluke thing then surgery will be in her near future.
Mao for now the adds are pulled and the Bronco is staying home with my Rotty!! Thanks to Ryan for the link and info and thanks to all you guys for your support. Bullet dodged

I faced that decision for surgery, but on a cat with the same injury. Was given two choices, several thousand for surgery or I could try a very restricted activity trial. She was crated for 6-8 weeks then let out 5 mins 1st day, 10 mins 2nd day, etc. Very labor intensive, but I was still trying to hang onto my house after going thru a divorce and $3,000 may have well been $30,000 at that point. Fast forward 9 years, still have the house and (knock on wood) the cat has not had any further issues with the leg. Just don't be tempted to let her do too much too soon, no matter how hard she begs! Keep her on a leash or whatever you need to do to control her enthusiasm. Don't want to let one squirrel undo her progress. Glad you're hanging onto your Bronco, and best wishes for your Rottie's recovery.

Your welcome steve and yes you may have a few set backs. Dogs get excited easy over the littlest and dumbest things and may push it. My dog had a few episodes in between where I could tell he stressed it too much. Body language is key so just pay attention to how she uses that leg. You'll know if the previous walk was just a little too much, if so just back off on the exercise for awhile before upping it up a bit! good luck bud!
