<blockquote>Question: X-rays show partial cruciate ligament tear in back right leg with significant arthritis in the knee. Hips okay. History of surgery two years ago with articifical ligament insertion in back left leg which is fine at this point. Cosequin DS 3 capsules a day given to dog for the last two weeks appears to be helping. Weight reduction
suggested (80 lb. big female) to lessen
stress on knee joints.
Partial tear surgery with natural
tissue repair just as successful as
artifical ligament replacement?
Anything else to do other than
Cosequin/weight reduction to help
the dog? Is surgery inevitable?
Thank you for your input.
