It’s extremely common for large dogs to rupture their cranial cruciate ligaments (CCL). This ligament is found in your pets knee and is the human equivalent to an ACL. When a dog ruptures this ligament their knee joint becomes unstable making it very difficult to walk on the affected leg. However there is a surgery to help your pup get back their mobility: The TPLO.
