Torn ACL Ligament

This is a common condition in younger (1-3 years old), larger animals.  Genetics is the major contributing cause, and many times trauma plays no part.  There are a few different surgeries that have been developed to fix this, and if you click on the link below, we can explain the pros/cons of each procedure.

Medial Patellar Luxation

This is a common condition in smaller dogs, where the groove that their knee-cap sits in gets so shallow that the knee-cap pops out of place occasionally.  When this happens, they usually limp on that leg for a few minutes, and it can be painful.  There is basically only one way to surgically fix this - and the results are usually very good.  Click below for more details.
