I know there are several threads on here regarding ACL injuries and surgery but I have not seen a lot of discussion on the TYPES of surgery. Brody (4 years old) tore his ACL on Friday and had x-rays today. Our vet called and confirmed that he did tear his ACL (I'm going to pick him up and look at the x-rays in a few hours). I've done some research and feel like traditional (extracapsular) surgery would be best for a corgi. I've read that TPLO is typically best for larger breeds and that the metal can cause complications down the road. Does anyone have any experience with this? Opinions? Success stories?

Best wishes for a great outcome. Hope he's back to normal when he recovers.
