We went to our vet in TPLO Marketing Platform For Vet Surgeons | TPLOCity to check what's wrong with my dog. They told us that he needs to undergo a leg surgery and I have no idea what tplo at first. It was caused by obesity and has ligament rupture if I'm not mistaken. I was scared for my dog and I do not know what to expect nor what to do. Can anyone share their experience? I appreciate all those who will respond.

There have been a number of dogs that have had that surgery. Hopefully someone will reply so you can ask questions, but in the meantime, do a forum search for TPLO and you will find several accounts.

Good luck! Hope all goes well.

:)I think I have mentioned my dog Spunky's experience with TPLO. Let me know if you can't find it. It's complicated.

Edited to add: It was also 12 years ago 😮 so there may be some differences now!

Oh I just posted an ACL post.
Is TPLO the same as ACL?
They didn't tell me Guinevere is heavy but she was 51/2lbs at 2 years then when I got her she is now 3 years and 8 lbs.
She went crazy jumping and running around my grandson and family, but he didn't even touch her. I was there..

TPLO is a surgical technique to restore the dog's ability to use the leg after a rupture of the Cranial Cruciate Ligament (which is the dog equivalent of what, in humans, is called the ACL).
