Our dog, Jake, ACL surgery

Posted on

Our dog, Jake, had  surgery on his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament). Didn’t realize it was going to be such an invasive procedure. He healed, never fully, and has a permanent limp, and we are grateful the veterinarian who performed the surgery did as well as he did. Prior to the surgery, Jake couldn’t seem to walk at all. It took about a year of recovery, and now Jake bounces in excitement when we ask him if he wants to go for a walk. He walks and will walk forever, but he does suffer some the next day.

What a great dog, we love our Jake. He is Australian Shepherd with some collie mix.
