Alternatives to Canine Surgeries - Whole Dog Journal Article

Alternatives to Canine Surgeries - Whole Dog Journal Article

I stumbled upon some interesting info today (see the link above)!  I've known and heard of many dogs tearing their ACL and "needing" surgery for a fix.  Sometimes that just may be the case...the only and best option... but I'm sure what many people (including me) didn't realize (and are not told) is that many dog owners are having great success with much more conservative ACL treatment approaches.  Physical therapy, leg braces, medications, acupuncture, chiropractors, and massage are a few of the options to help your injured pup.  Might be worth a look if this is something you ever have to face.

A great blog post about alternative treatments used HERE
