Came back from Colorado and resumed jogging with my faithful jog partner and full time Golden Retriever , Sydney. About 1 mile out I notice she's now lipping and its her back hind quarters. Take a couple days off (she still wants to go every morning) and she's not better. Take her to the vet today and they are pretty sure its her ACL! Going back for more tests and evaluation Wednesday. I didn't even know dogs had ACL's.
Sydney is 5 yeas old and she will definitely get the surgery needed . The vet estimated the surgery to be about $2,000. Just what I didn't need to hear at Christmas time. The vet was pretty positive after recovery she could resume her normal activity. I'm pretty concerned her having more knee problems occur and the expense of more surgery. I also hate to see her not going on her runs every AM as she kept me in shape too.
Has anybody had any experience with their dogs having knee surgery and how it worked out and their dog's activity afterwards? Thanks.
