Benry – Band surgery

A dog before acl band surgery.My dog completely tore his ACL. Our vet did the band surgery and he healed very well and we followed up keeping him calm and safe to the T. Well on week 12 we noticed him holding that leg up as he did right after his injury. My stomach sank. I felt this can’t be good. How was this possible when he was watched and we minimized his space in the house to be safe. We took him to the vet only to hear it appeared the band had snapped or stretched. The band does not show up in an x-ray. I feel this should not have happened with no jumping, no stairs, no running, only out on a leash. No roughhousing. I am devastated. I can’t afford this nor put my dog through this again. Especially so soon. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? I mean he hasn’t even had a chance to do normal dog things yet and we weren’t careless at all. Feeling so sad and helpless now I don’t know what to do now.

    My dog tore his cruciate ligament, he is a very active husky. Our ourthopidic surgeon reccommend TPLO surgery as he said band surgery was not as successful. We are 14weeks post op and he is doing amazing, he has a metal plate and pins in he legs but he is back walking 3miles a day. We started hydrotherapy a few weeks ago which is really helping as well. I would look in to TPLO surgery instead.
