My heeler recently tore his ACL.. Is this common for this breed.. They're so active that I wouldn't think so.. He's only 3 and just landed wrong on it playing frisbee... He's my baby and I'm worried about him.. Has surgery on the 31st.. TPLO.. Anyone have any knowledge of that proceedure? Fairly new I think....

Here is link with information about this type of surgery:

This injury is not uncommon. I work for a Vet clinic and we can see up to three of this type of injury a week (and we are just a small practice.) Just make sure your surgeon is a board certified specialist in orthopedics. The specialist that we have sent our clients to for this type of surgery has a great success rate.

must tell us how the surgery goes. My dog is 9 months old, a BMD, and she tore hers. I'm thinking she will eventually need surgery. Right now she isn't limping but she limps on and off. How much is the surgery? I hear so many different prices
