I'm working 2nd shift, 11 hour days... so Dottie typed up the follow post.
I'm hoping all of my Delaware Bully neighbors can make a recommendaton to us ! !
Hi if I'm doing this wrong...I'm sorry this is Dottie(Ricks better half) posting for him while he is at work.
Hershey our little boy who will be one this Sunday has been having some soreness with his knee, well this morning I dropped him off at our vet so they could sedate him and do a good exam of his leg/knee. Well I picked him up tonight after work and well you know it's not good when the girl says the doctor needs to speak with you in the exam room. Long story short... it is suspected that he has a torn CCL(cranial cruciate ligament) with torn LCL(lateral collateral ligament) with possible meniscal tear. Well our vet will not do the surgery they said we need to take him to a specialty vet hospital. Below are the recommended vets:
Veterinary specialty center of Delaware
Dr Mark A Cofone, VMD, DACVS -surgery
Dr Authur J. Jankowski, VMD, DACVS -surgery
Veterinary Referral Center - Malvern, PA
Dr Dietrich Franczuszki, DVM, MS
What we're looking for is if anyone has any experience with this type of surgery, if so please share the good and bad. Also if anyone has any experience with any of these doctors or can recommend a good surgeon in our area.
Thank you for all your help, I'm sure Rick will get on and fix what I didn't enter that he wanted entered
Thanks in advance all ! ! ! !
