Knee surgery info

Recommended Posts

bart simpson

I have a lab mix who has a torn ACL. The vet has told us that she will require a surgery called TPLO which will cost about $2100. Just wondering if any of you have any experience with this surgery. What kind of success have you had with it? Does the price we've been quoted seem reasonable? If not, do you have any recommendations for vets that do this procedure? I live in Eagan but my vet is refering us to a clinic in Maple Grove.

Thanks for any info.

Nick

I have my dog going through the same thing right now. She is actually having the surgery done as I am typing. I am having the surgery done at the UofM and the total bill for the surgury is supposed to be between 2100 & 2400. Then with the follow up visits to make sure things are going well will cost extra. They said it will take about 6-8 weeks of rehab and laying low with out activity before she can do much. Then it is about a month of increased rehab and exercise before she is back to normal. There is a thread in this form that has more information on it. I think the subject is "torn knee ligament".

Thanks Grizwald. That thread answered most of my questions. Look for a "fire sale" under my name in the "for sale" forum shortly. Gotta pay for this somehow! Best wishes to your dog!

Our Lab had this done on both of his knees this year. We are in Denver and the price was around 2800.00 He had the first one done in Jan. and the second in April. Though he is still not completely healed he runs around like a pup. (He's 8 years old)

Well, the old girl had her ACL surgery yesterday. Comes home today. I am not looking forward to the rehab...sounds like a pain.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
