|This is an X-ray of a CCL repair|
This surgery is quicker and it's an easier way to ease their pain. The procedure has less potential for serious complications with a quicker recovery time than traditional surgery that actually involves cutting the dogs bone.
The surgery costs $2200.00 - 2400.00 and the dog is back on his feet in about 12 weeks with little sign of injury. The dog must be healthy and weigh more than 40 pounds, in order to have thick enough bones to endure the drilling for the connection.
