is a 4 year old Bichon Frise who suffered from chronic right rear lameness. Dr. Hoffman at Westside Veterinary Clinic referred to Dr. Dew for surgery. Dr. Dew identified a torn Cranial Cruciate Ligament and performed a right TTA. The prognosis is good for healing, improved function and decreased progression of degenerative joint disease (arthritis). Nursing care, physical therapy, exercise restriction and the use of Glycoflex will play critical roles in an uncomplicated recovery and optimization of long term function.
