HELP partial CCL tear

    My pitbull partially tore his CCL a little over 2 weeks ago. I took him to the vet and they gave him Rimadyl and told me to put him on strict rest. I also started giving him glucosamine tablets. He is slightly better but still limps and holds his back leg up. The vet discussed surgery options which I will do if it’s needed but I don’t wanna jump the gun. How long did it take for your dog to recover from a partial CCL tear without surgery? And any remedies that worked for your dog?

    I’m so sorry this happened. I would have opted for surgery as well had it had happened to one of my dogs. Conservative methods don’t work out to well and you end up needing surgery down the line anyways.
    Hope the surgery goes well and he has a speedy recovery! Sending many healing vibes.
