just wonderin what do you prefer, medical or surgical treatment for acl injury? I've read in this article tplo that yes medical is more conservative than surgical but it is also way more expensive and long term but for most of us we dont want our babies to undergo a surgery. so what do you guys think?

I changed my 90 lb dog, Kodi, to a lower fat food and 3 tablets daily of Co-sequin. The vet recommended surgery for a torn acl but I wanted to try
this first, as he had done this before in his other back leg. After a couple of months of not allowing him to jump or run and following the food and
Co-sequin schedule he has returned to his old self and the tear has healed.
