Just got back from vet and sounds like Bean has a torn ACL. Our vet performed the 'drawer test' and concluded that Bean in fact has a tear. Reading some past post by others on this board about ACL it appear there is some differences of option on surgery or not. Our vet essentially said some patients who opt to take anti-infamatories for a number of days have recovered from partial tears but can and sometimes do come back later with a full tear. I don't want to rush to surgery for anything but don't like the idea of Bean being in pain any longer than necessary. From other post it looks as though recovery is crucial and takes a good while of crate rest and rehab (simliar to humans w/ ACL). I'd like to hear other thoughts here or links to extra reading material. Bean is 1 1/2 and recently went through entropion surgery which also leads me to ask about estimated cost of surgery. We'll find out soon enough from the specialist I guess but we've had a rough run with vet bills the past few months.
