Default Looking for a vet, dog tore an ACL

After tlking to 2 different vets it looks like out 4 year old golden retreiver may have completely torn his ACL (CCL), and may have had 2 partially torn ACLs for a long time.
One or both will probably need to be operated on.

Has anyone used a local vet for this type of surgery?
Looking for good recomendations on the board, if there is someone to avoid you can PM me if you don't want to publicly blast them.

Thanks,
Scott

MSU vet clinic. Had it done locally and it was a perfect procedure but very costly. I believe msu is now finding results from an older and less expensive procedure to be the better of the two. Loved the vet that did the surgery in Oakland county though. Let me know if you want their info.

Usually people let one tear go, the dog over compensates and blows out the other.
My wife works at a vet, but they call in a specialist.

They also refer alot to here.

Your wife is a saint.. I could never work in at a vet. Sick, fucked up, death, mutilated people.. I can do that and eat at the same time. But to work with animals takes a special person.

We take our Aussie and cat to Donaldsons in Lapeer. It's a drive but they are awesome! They are right off Lapeer Rd.

Oakland Animal Hospital in Rochester - Dr. Duncan. My dog has the same thing in both legs. We have done the first surgery (TPLO) and getting ready for the 2nd leg in a couple weeks. I can't say enough good things about the staff and the care they have given our fur-kid...top notch! Price was even cheaper than a couple other places - PM me for details if you like.

x101 on both of these. We deal with several of the doctors at MichVetSpec through my work, and the owners are always very happy with the treatment at their offices. MSU is also a good option because they are far less expensive, but still just as good as any other vet out there.

Thank you everyone for the responses. Blake is back to walking on his leg already and putting full preasure, we are still limiting his walking outside, and no stairs.
Talked to a vet who thinks now it may have just been a sprain, made an appointmnet.

Again, Thanks All.
