Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Our 12 year old tore the ACL on his left hind leg on Friday. He had TPLO surgery on his right leg 2.5 years ago. He is very healthy and active still for his age. Just wondering if anyone has gone forward with this surgery for their pet at this age or possibly even older?

We do have a member who is on occasionally. @jbealer who has done this surgery or similar on one of her dogs when she was older. Can't remember how old Sierra was for her last one but think she had both of hers done fairly late in life. Sierra went to 15 or 16 and think her knees/acl was done around the age of your pup, maybe later. Here is a post that goes over some of Sierra's later years ailments and how Jenn handled them. If you find Jenn's scrapbooks I'm sure she talks more about when she had her tears and what all they went through with the recovery more in depth but the search function of the forum isn't stellar and there's a lot of content to dig through in scrapbooks but I found these two posts that mention. In general if she's in good shape then recovery should be possible. Just might have to slow down on the big giant walks at warp speed afterwards.

RIP Sierra post

Sierra 14th birthday (shows image/video of her knee recovery)
