Suki, a German Shepherd started limping while on vacation. The limp didn’t improve after several days of minimal activity. After an examination at a conventional vet, the vet suspected a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) based on the anterior drawer test. The vet suggested a surgical consultation for a Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy (TPLO). The procedure involves cutting and rotating the tibia bone and then attaching a metal plate with screws.
