Improving the Results of Dog Cruciate Surgery
If your dog has suffered from cruciate injury and faces surgery, you can improve you dogs recovery by reading the Top Dog Health cruciate Surgery rehabilitation guide. This guide is full of valuable information to help your dog get back on his feet after surgery.
by Dr. James St.Clair, Director of Veterinary Medicine
The concept was crystal clear to us that if pet owners were provided with the proper information to help their dogs recover safely, taught not only the importance of basic physical therapy principles but how and when to perform them, that we could improve dogs chances of recovering safely and getting back to a normal life. Now in our 3rd year online I want to share some interesting statistics to prove that we were right all along.
TopDog's Statistics Look Much Better
So here is our finding. In recent months we have been surveying pet owners who downloaded the TopDog Home Rehabilitation Guide „¢ and whose dogs are now 1 year after their initial injury asking them: Has Your Dog Torn the Other ACL (ie. cruciate ligament) within the last year.
Of the over 200 pet owners who responded to the survey, 30% of them reported that their dogs had torn the other ACL within a year.
At first glance that might not seem that big of a deal but the reality is, that number is HUGE. That means out of over 20,000 dogs whose owners used our instructions, we potentially helped save approximately 4,000 of them from needing a second surgery on the other hind leg.
Now please understand this data is preliminary and over the next few months we are going to analyze other variables that could have affected the results; such as how many pet owners took their dogs for professional therapy at a canine rehab facility, which we strongly encourage pet owners to do for the absolute best care and results. We also plan on looking at the individual interaction level of these pet owners in the recovery process, meaning how many truly followed the information and watched the videos. We will also be looking at the use of joint supplements in these patients both during the recovery process and after.
