Dog Repair

To vet today. My 70 lb dog has torn her ACL. Needs surgery.

She is quite lame, and feeling sad.

We have the option of two differing surgeries. The less expensive and invasive one is the one the vet seems to lean toward. It will still be about 1500 $.

has anyone out there gone through this with a dog? How was recovery? What was outcome?

We will scrape up money, but I am feeling sort of daunted. Dog is too.

(Lots of talk about her stifle. Didn't know dog even had a stifle. I thought that was just horses....)

Am also trying to write, not going easily.

On the upside, I am so loving the new Hornblower fictions! The more the better!
