    Default Hello

    My name is Rick and have a 1 year old EB Bode. Unfortunately we got some news from vet that he thinks Bode has ruptured ACL rear leg. Wondering if anyone has been through this? Have appt. with specialist next week for 2nd evaluation and possible surgery

    We don't have any experience to share regarding the ACL issue here, but I'm sure the members who do will be along shortly. Good luck to Bode and you however it goes.

    Welcome! I have not had this experience but check back tomorrow as I know others have. I remember there is a whole documented diary on here somewhere too. Hopefully I can find it for you. If not I bet @cali~jenn can.
    @JeannieCO has also been through this too I think?

    welcome! Cutty had his acl surgery gosh over a year ago now? I can't keep track of time anymore but I added to that thread when we went thru it. His surgery was the easier of the 3 types I believe. His weight is right at about 50 pounds which makes him a good candidate for that one, along with the type of injury of course. The hardest thing about it was keeping him locked down for the 6 weeks. Felt like 6 months and he was bored which is very dangerous. Lol I had him locked in my bedroom rather than crating and had direct access to potty outside from there so that helped. If you have any questions just ask. Many others have gone thru this as well and can offer much help.

    We can't THANK YOU ALL enough!!! This is the place that we needed. Everyone is very nice and forthcoming with information. Now I know what people mean when they say " Unless you own a Bulldog, You'll never know!" . This is his favorite,

    Hi Rick. I have a lot of experience with my pitbull when tore his CCL (that's the canine ACL). He ended up having to have a TPLO surgery and then a second one on the other rear leg 1.5 years later. I have to take all 3 of my guys to the vet for shots in just a bit so I'll come back later and fill you in. Will Bode have a TPLO or just a repair?

    Are you in So. Calif.? I see you're going in for a 2nd evaluation. If you need a reference for where Ace had his done (we were living in So. Calif. at the time), there's an EXCELLENT place in Irvine.

    I'll be back later. Sorry Bode tore his ccl.

    Hi JeannieCO, I live in MA and vet referred to specialist. My appt. is April 10 and guess they'll look at X-rays from vet and do their own eval to see if surgery req'd. Found out couple surgeries offered but 1 is not for him, the other more probable where they notch out bone? Should I assume that if one leg is done the other will follow?? Breeder also recommended nairs surgery at same time. Thank you
