    Can't help with that because I live in Texas, but hope your pup gets better soon. Poor baby dog.

    Please don't take him to Fountain Valley. I used Veterinary Surgical Specialists in Tustin. They are on Edinger near Jamboree. I can't remember the surgeon's last name but her first name is Diane. She is great and so very familiar with bulldogs and their breathing problems. Best of luck.

    Thumbs up Re: Need Surgeon for Torn ACL in So Cal!

    Hi there. In 2002-04 we lived in Corona, CA and our Pit (Ace) tore his ACL and had to have a TPLO done. That was 8 years ago. Dr. Christopher S. Eich, DVM that did his surgery and he's still there. The place was amazing. They website is [replacer_a] and their contact info is Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital, 1371 Reynolds Ave. Irvine, CA 92614, (949) 833-9020. Ace's leg is still going strong after all these years and he just turned 13 I'm happy to say. This is not a surgery you want someone doing if they're not experienced. It's pretty intensive.

    If you have any questions about the surgery and the rehab (which I must stress is critical to a full recovery), feel free to PM me. Ace did have to have his other leg done about 1 1/2 years later and he had that done here in Colorado. It's a 50/50 chance they'll do the other leg too. Good luck to you.

    I have an excellent resource for you..Animal Specialty Group..on the border of Gendale and Los Angeles..took our rottie there after being referred by our vet.they were wonderful AND a teaching facility. Up on every procedure..medicine and even holistic..like acupuncture. I highly recommend them and can't say enough good about them. They are open 7 days a week and long hours. I can get their phone number if you are interested. Good luck!
