ACL Repair Isn’t Just For Football Players

Did you know that dogs can have orthopedic problems too? A common injury is to the ACL, a ligament that is vital for proper movement of the knee. If you see your dog limping, holding up a hind leg, or notice swelling on the inside of the knee, this could be an ACL issue. Depending on the size of the dog and the extent of the injury, treatment ranges from anti-inflammatory medications to surgery. If you think your pet has an ACL injury, schedule an appointment with your veterinarian for a physical exam.
