ACL - advice needed!
My Honey injured her knee in September and I rushed her to the ER where the vet felt the problem was a luxating patella (she had previously had surgery on her other back leg). I didnt have the money for xrays so for the last 2.5 months she has been on limited movements/play etc. She has shown improvement, even running a little while playing (until I stop her haha) - yet she still has a limp. I brought her to an orthopedic surgeon who told me that it was the ACL not the LP.. but he was going to do the xrays when she comes in for surgery - so still no xrays.
Does anyone have any experience with ACL injuries? Would she be able to play if the injury was 'that' bad? If this is going to help her in the long run, of course I will have it, but what if it is unnecessary? Her surgery is scheduled for next Monday and now I am concerned that she may not need it?
Please, any input is GREATLY appreciated.
