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


  1. Always good to check out all the options before making any drastic decisions. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Very interesting, thanks for sharing!


  3. It is always GOOD to ASK a LOT of Questions... before leaping right into thingys.

  4. This is good info. Yes, seems it is happening quite often!

    Your Pals,

  5. That is a cute picture of you!! We have had problems with tears and treated with conservative treatments...and supplements...and rest. So far, so good. We are very grateful! xo Chloe and LadyBug
