So it could have been something else? Because I am looking at her options, right now an ACL does not qualify as an emergency since it can be managed. All our vet clinics are restricted to emergency only. No surgeries unless it's life saving. Labs and diagnostics the same.a groin muscle tear has the same symptoms of an acl. if she's on metacam it's probably reducing her pain.
Even if I could get her the surgery it is expensive and the prognosis is impacted by her age. I need to look at less invasive.
Something else would be a much happier me.
