Hosts Dr. Roger Welton and Dr. Karen Louis discuss the most common injury of the canine rear leg: Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture.  Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture or Tear in dogs is a common injury of the major stabilizing ligament of the knee.  Injury of this ligament more often than not requires surgery to effectively treat.  Our hosts delve into recognition of the injury, confirming a diagnosis, and what surgical options are available.  Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen also have detailed articles on this topic at their respective blogs at Web-DVM.net and VetChick.com.
