Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture

The ruptured cruciate ligament is the most common knee injury in dogs.  It usually involves a rear leg that is suddenly so sore that the dog can hardly bear weight on it, or no weight at all. If left alone, the leg will appear to improve over the course of a week or two but the knee will be notably swollen and arthritis will set in quickly. For more information visit: www.theveterinarypartner.com
