***I highly recommend these Red and Infrared Light Therapy Pads:
www.equinelighttherapy.com The medium pad is very versatile and light therapy is so powerful. Or a cold laser as well – I have both.
I cant recommend this harness enough – it seems a bit spendy but worth its weight in gold for you and your dog: http://helpemup.com/
I purchased a Class III cold laser and that has helped so much. I just recently did this and wish I had done it years ago when he was first injured. The cost is 5.
Finally Calm Dog magnesium supplement helps address the muscle component – relaxes the muscles and the dog.
All of these suggestions can be used with or without surgery.
2013 – My almost 10 year old lab/shephard mix was diagnosed with a CCL (ACL in humans) tear or rupture in his left hind knee. I am going to document our experience with this on video. Shadow has been with us since he was 8 weeks ago and never had a sick or injured moment – so this is quite a surprise and challenge. We opted for conservative management due to his age. If your dog is healthy enough and you can afford surgery, I think that I would highly consider that route in hindsight. We felt Shadow was at an age that might not do well for recovery.
Update: Shadow passed away January 28, 2017 at age 13. Rest in piece sweet baby.
