Hi has anyone come across this in they're dogs? We had abi at the vet today as she has been limping on and off for a week or so we thought she had maybe just hurt it running about in the snow but it didnt seem to be getting any better so we got it checked out, vet said he's not 100% sure and has given her anti-inflamatorys and if no better will get her in and do a proper exam!

We used to have a Neapolitan Mastiff who had this problem in both of her back legs (each on a separate occasion).

She needed surgery on both occasions to deal with it. The operation she had is known as a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy) which fixed her up perfectly - you'd never have known she'd had a problem once she had healed up.

The operation isn't cheap though: each op cost about £2,500 at the time. Recently I had a phone call from a Saint owner who was trying to find a breeder who knew something about the operation as her vet had told her that her dog should have it and quoted £4,000 for it!

Hi Lorri!

I'm very sorry to hear about Abi.

Hannibal had a TPLO procedure on his right hind leg in October.

If you'd like a chat about this and cruciate issues PM me your phone number and I'd be only too happy to give you a call to discuss our experiences and views!

May I just say, if it's ANY comfort - Han had his op at the beginning of October but by Christmas he was really getting back to normal and now he's really enjoying life again!!!

Kindest thoughts
BeBe and Han

That must be painful. I'm glad my dog does not have that condition.
