I am looking for anyone who has had post-op problems with the CCL fishing line surgery. Our 22 lb. poodle had the surgery almost four weeks ago. At the end of week 3 he suddenly began holding up his leg and now at the almost four week mark the leg remains raised, he will not touch it to the ground. The vet has placed him on antibiotics thinking maybe there is an internal infection. He was doing very well, we were doing the slow walks and his progress was great prior to this sudden problem. We have been 100% on top of his mobility and he has not been loose, has not run anywhere, no jumping off of anything, no sudden movements. We are completely at a loss and after four days of antibiotics there is no improvement. Anyone out there have this or something similar happen with their dog?
did anyone get back to you one this issue as I’m in the same boat. After week 6 he’s still holding leg up, hardly any toe touching.
what procedure is the fishing line surgery?
