TPLO Arthroscopy – Ernie

Hello! Ernie, our 10-year-old kelpie cross was just one night holding his hind leg off the ground and we could see he was in pain. The vet took x-rays 2 days after but couldnt see that anything was going on. They suggested an arthroscopy which we did. I cannot thank these vets enough. A mobile […]

TPLO Surgery Story – Bennett

TPLO and Stifle Brace – Morti

Morti is now a near 12-year-old, 75-pound, black Lab mix. In March of 2016 he ruptured the CCL of his right leg. It seemed TPLO was the ONLY way to go. The surgeon agreed (obviously) and 3 other area vets. He was healthy enough, still hiking 5 miles and full of energy. The surgery is […]

Second Knee Injury Treatment Options – Molly

Molly blew out her left knee last year jumping up to bark at E.T. on the TV. She was in obvious, immediate, excruciating pain shown by the terrible howling for the first several seconds. We got her right in and had TPLO done within a few days. Over the last year she has returned to […]

Simitri Success – Harley and Rudy

Living out in the country we have always had very active, high energy dogs and because they are so active, just like many athletes, we have experienced injuries unfortunately.  The first time we experienced a knee injury was with our late dog named Crosby.  Crosby during his lifetime had three knee surgeries, two of them […]

Simitri Stable in Stride – Boo

Boo is a 3-year-old female border collie.  Boo is/was a very active dog, as I’m sure most border collies are.  She is not a working dog, however, I do live on a farm, and as such she gets to run around at will all day long.  About 6 months ago Boo came back from one […]
