    UGH!! I was hoping that would not be the case. I went throught this twice with Nitschke... it is a tough recovery for you more than him. Have to keep them very calm, no steps, no running, leashed walks only, no jumping... you get it.

    Best of luck withit all and please keep us posted

    I took to ebn tonight bc my Bocephus is limping as well. Sometimes when he gets up, he limps, other times he doesn't. When we go outside for a bathroom break, he might limp for a second, then its as if nothing is wrong, he runs around as usual. Like I said, bc he doesn't limp all the time, I thought we would wait it out. I feel bad not doing anything. I checked out his leg and foot, doesn't seem to be a problem with the foot. I have been trying to keep him from jumping off the couch/bed. But that is next to impossible if he thinks he hears something
    At this point, I am just curious about what to expect at the vet..... will they automatically want to do xray/mri? Do they do meds first? He's allergic to Carprofen....
    Any insight would be great!!!

    UPDATE::: Max saw the Orthopedic Vet specialist yesterday - Yes, it is his ACL and he most likely will require surgery - He will continue on the NSAIDS and PAIN MEDICATION for the next 2-3 weeks, and the Vet will re-evaluate him again in one month. If he has not improved, the surgery should be done - but the surgery will
    cost $3600.00 - don't know yet if that is do-able financially. Will keep all of you posted. Thank you all for your care and concern for Maximus.
