Lenny. My dog tore her ACL a few months ago and our vet

Customer Question

Hi Lenny. My dog tore her ACL a few months ago and our vet suggested surgery or managing her pain with meds and see how it goes. We opted for the second option and recovery from surgery makes us nervous because Looosey is 11. Long story short I've noticed she is struggling a bit more lately and I was wanting to know if there is anything to do to help her heal? I was also thinking that wrapping her knee might help? What are your thoughts?

How is Looosey's health other than the torn CCL?
Is she overweight at all?
Has she been exercising more than normal lately?
