Our Passion is the Care for Your Pet

We’re Experts in Treating Cranial Cruciate Ruptures

At Astonlee Veterinary Hospital, we have 35 years experience in treating cranial cruciate rupture injuries in dogs. There are a variety of techniques used, but biological graft replacement surgery is the technique that we prefer to use for this type of injury. This is because it’s non-invasive, relatively economic, and has a 30-year track record at our hospital. We believe that by doing this, we won’t make one of the most painful dog injuries even worse.

How the Treatment Works

Biological graft replacement therapy is a straightforward process, and it allows your dog to get back to their normal selves. In the simplest terms, we replace the torn or broken ligaments. This allows them to be stronger, helping your four-legged friend to run and jump to their heart’s content.

Why Do We Do This?

It is our belief that this is the best option for dogs, and the one that gives them the best chance of being fit and healthy. The surgery is non-invasive, and leaves very few marks on your canine friend. The cranial cruciate ligament in dogs is the equivalent to a human’s anterior cruciate ligament, and we wouldn’t consider bone-sawing with a human. That’s why we use this procedure, ensuring that the procedure is as effective as possible. We have a 96% success rate in transforming dogs from injured to fully fit.
