Disease of the cranial cruciate ligament in dogs is perhaps one of the most common orthopedic issues we see. This painful and debilitating problem can really sideline a pet, especially one who is larger or particularly athletic.
Several surgical approaches exist that attempt to create stabilization and relieve pain in the diseased joint, but none are perfect. In the quest to get better at helping dogs suffering from cruciate disease, Poulsbo Animal Clinic’s own Dr. Craig Adams was trained to perform the CBLO knee surgery. This technique puts us one step closer to getting affected pets back on their feet again.
