Anyone have any experience with this? I went out to run errands last Friday and came home to my 13 yr old yellow lab limping on his back left leg. I called the vet and got him in right away. Vet said his stifle is loose, and it could be stretched or torn ACL. Instructions are to keep confined and short walks on a leash and we have a recheck this Friday. He is already on Adequan and Previcox for arthritis (which is working because I swear he thinks he is 2 years old). Surgery is an option, but my vet said out of every 10 dogs he sees, he only refers 1 or 2 for surgery, and that most of the time dogs improve with rest and time.
I'm hoping to hear success stories without surgery because at his age it makes me very nervous. There is so much conflicting information on the internet. I don't know why I drive myself crazy researching stuff
