My dog totally blew out his right ACL. Other than the slight yelp when it happened he had exams from three different vets and never yelped or looked to be in discomfort.

If they can't tell whats wrong by the exam or need more info they will do x-rays and they usually give anti-inflammatory meds.

I spent much of 2013 at my vet and various specialty vets. I'm hoping for a calmer 2014.
