Buckles was dx w/ a cruc. lig. tear to her r hind knee in 2009. This is the biggest decision I have every had to make. Here knee is worst, she's limping. She is seeing Tuft's next wk. she is on Rimadyl which works ok. I have a few things I am worried about, she has a leaky heart valve, she is almost 6 yrs old, the cost is $5000.00, a brace $1000.00. I love her to death and I dont know what to do. 6-8 wks of healing, how do I know if it's going to happen to the other knee, what if the surg.doesnt work, wonder if she get and infection, pain, etc.? They talked about TPLO, TTA is not the best for boxers. I dont know what to do....Help?
