Any vets on here? I have a question or two for you if you are willing to share.

Had one of my pups rupture both CCL (ACL in us humans) in her hind legs. Wondering about non surgical options.

A good friend of mine just had surgery on his German Shepard for the same thing. She is doing really good but its hard a to keep a big active dog contained.

Our dog did the same thing, she ruptured one trying to jump in the car w/out help, then the other not long after because she was putting more weight on it.

We ended up going with a cold laser treatment, initial consult was something like $120 then about $20 per treatment after that, I think she had 6 treatments

It definitely helped, the main thing was keeping her on a leash so she didn't overdo it. She was slow the winter after it happened but by the next spring she was 100%

The beatings will continue until morale improves.

That's what the old lady tells me. But I think she's saying that's what she'll do to me. It's really hard to tell when she's playing.

I had a German Shepherd I got about 12 years ago and never had anything like that happen. She was always in good health but we was very active all the time.
Now I got a German Shepherds pup that's 4 months old. Never again my hands and arms look like I use heroin from all the bite marks.

How old is your dog? If they blow both at the same time, surgery is usually the best option. If they only blew one you could nurse that leg but 9 times out of 10 if they blow one, the other goes within the year. I wish I could tell you there was another option as I know the surgery is expensive especially when both cruciates are blown. They do have the ability to heal as scar tissue but with both blown, it's hard because you'd have to have the dog completely immobile for the duration of the healing process. I'm a vet tech and not a vet or an orthopedic specialist by any means but we do see quite a lot of blown cruciates at my clinic.

She is 4 years old and her breed is Bernadine (St. Bernard and Great Dane). She is probably 3.5 feet at the shoulder and 110 lbs. She is long an lean. She will go down stairs currently but my son or I have to carry her into the house. She is on pain killers and I know she hurts. Thanks for all the feedback.

I'm sorry to hear about the injury. My dog Kobe damaged his playing frisbee . I know how hard it can be to watch. I never heard of the cold laser treatment. That sounds promising. We had Kobe operated on . What I'll say about that is shop around. I heard quotes that averaged 35 to 4500 bucks. Found the current vet we still use today. He charged 1500 for the same surgery. He was able to go back to playing frisbee and being an all around wild man though he sometimes gets sore if he goes too hard.
