Blue injured his right rear leg after a run about a month ago. The vet diagnosed CCL tear (equivalent to an ACL tear in humans). I am a huge believer in Medical insurance for my dogs. As luck would have it, CCL surgery is one of the exceptions on the policy. $3500 (+or -) later, he's been fixed up and is home for therapy. He had TPLO surgery. The doctor carefully explained all the different methods to fix the tear, and we chose this method. So, all is good now and he should be ready to go in about a month. Caution is the name of the game, and less is better than more.
