What Happened: Monte my bog lovable 9 year old Lab mix had an ACL tear in august on his Left knee now he has a torn ACL on his right. We did our best to stabilize the left with a ready-fit brace from Animal Ortho Care but now that he has torn the right we need him to have two custom lifetime braces. His muscle atrophy in his hind end is getting fairly severe and we would like to get these new braces on and get into a Physical Therapy regiment as soon as possible. With your help we hope to accomplish this!
The Brace: What the brace does is stabilize his knee so he can walk without pain or limping. Basically this brace will help us heal his leg over the course of the next 6-8 months and help us avoid a very costly and extremely invasive TPLO surgery that may eventually cause damage to his body or even fail in the long run. The braces will be a permanent fixture in his life but after 6-8 months he should be able to do light activities without them and return to his normal gait.
