Description

Cruciate ligament injuries affect large numbers of dogs each year. It's estimated that in North America alone, that expenses related to these injuries cost pet owners over $1.3 billion. Surgical intervention is commonly recommended, however age or health status of the pet or economic issues impact the care that an affected animal ultimately receives.

In this presentation Dr. Deirdre Chiaramonte discusses more about cranial cruciate ligament injuries as well as non-surgical options for managing dogs with these injuries. The focus is on a multimodal approach that includes pharmacologic, non-pharmacologic, physical rehabilitation, and weight management strategies. Discussion includes pain management, therapeutic exercises, and an overview of other integrative interventions.
