Understanding What Torn ACL In Dogs Is And What To Do About It

Understanding What Torn ACL In Dogs Is And What To Do About It

A torn acl is one injury typical to the canine species. Another typical injury is that of the ccl. Here is what these medical acronyms stand for. The torn acl in dogs refers to their injured or torn anterior cruciate ligaments, while the CCL in dogs refers to its cranial cruciate ligament. In both cases and under extreme circumstances, surgery would be recommended by specialist veterinary surgeons. But among these specialists are those pushing for a more holistic and organic approach to healing. It is also a case of prevention being better than the cure.

Among the dog lovers introduced to the prospectively better alternative of fitting their dogs with dog braces instead of going in for surgery will be those waxing lyrical about the all-encompassing and pleasing results. For one thing, having a dog brace fitted has saved them tremendously on the expensive procedures of surgery which are not always entirely comprehensive when even pet medical plans are being utilized.

Over and above readymade dog knee braces, custom made orthotic braces are also being built. These braces also take care of the canine’s ankles – the hock and tarsal – its wrist – the carpal, as well as its elbow and spine. As the dog ages into its advanced years it is a good idea to talk to your specialist vet about equipping your pet with braces. For the record, the dog knee braces help its wearers cope with involuntary movements of its knees, particularly when injured or strained.  Anterior ‘drawer movement’ of the tibia on the femur is controlled.

Dog’s knee braces are also known as stifle braces, dealing specifically with the torn acl and ccl. Other knee fitments having being mentioned, emphasis continues to be placed on knee braces for dogs owing to the commonality of these injuries. The braces will continue to be recommended by humane specialists, particularly when surgery can no longer be seen as an option for both the dog and its owner. For the dog, it will be a case of no amount of surgery being able to cure the dog of its ailments. For the cash-strapped owner, it will be a case of eliminating the distress while still being to take care of his or her best friend.

And that is another thing. A dog is a woman’s best friend too.
