Cruciate Ligament Repair and Rehabilitation

Cranial cruciate ligament injuries of the stifle (knee) are a common occurrence in dogs. Tears to the cruciate ligament can occur from trauma, but more often it is a result of a slow degenerative process that compromises the ligament and results in tearing. The cruciate ligament provides stability to the stifle joint. Without this stability, excessive motion occurs at the stifle joint and can lead to progressive osteoarthritis (OA).
