my 5 yr old pitbull/ sibrean huskey has torn his legaments
Hey guys my 5 year old 25% sibrean huskey 75% pitbull tore his real legaments but his right one is the worst one , its good when hes standing or walking but if we take him on runs or to the farm hell start limping , and a emergency pet hospital suggested that i should get a surgery done to them , but when i asked my older cousin whos a parmasist ( who is also a previous dog owner ), said that dogs always come back limping from what they do and over time itll get better. And ive also noticed that when it gets really cold somedays my dog will start picking his leg up dose that mean i should keep in inside or atleast in a warm garage?? Also dose that mean i should let time heal this leag?? i dont know thats why i need help and i want whats best for him before its winter because most of the times our canadian winters get up to -10c
Surgery is certainly a valid option for ACL ligament tears and injuries in large breed dogs like yours. Natural therapies with pet supplements containing correct combination's of Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitan sulfate, Omega-3 fatty Acids, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid have worked very well for many of our canine patients with hind leg-stifle injuries. Should you want to follow up with me, that would be fine Best Wishes Dr Carol Osborne, DVM
