My Rottweiller was running and I thought he broke his back leg when he fell. I took him to the vet and he told me he will need surgery on his knee. What should I do?

Answer

Your dog most likely damaged his cranial cruciate ligament (ACL). There are several alternatives to surgery, and surgery is not always the answer to your dog's problems. Take the time to learn about the procedure and the alternatives before putting your dog through a major operation. You can learn more by reading http://hubpages.com/dogs/dog-cruciate-ligament-rep...
