The cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) is one of the most important stabilizers inside the canine knee (stifle) joint, the middle joint in the back leg. It serves many important purposes in the joint, such as shock absorption. Cranial cruciate ligament disease can affect dogs of all sizes, breeds, and ages, but rarely cats. The recommended treatment is surgery and this is what we did with the dog that came to our clinic sufferinG from CrCL, in order to stabilize the knee’s joint. The surgery was totally successful and our little friend is expected to recover shortly.
