Jim – A Torn Knee Ligament

Jim – A Torn Knee Ligament

Name: Jim
Age: 9yrs old
Weight: 36kg
Breed: Bull Mastiff X
Sex: Male, desexed

History: Jim limped through Wilston Vet’s door in July this year. His owners had noticed that he had been intermittently lame on his right hind leg for a little while. A partial tear of his cruciate ligament was suspected by another vet in February after x-rays of the right knee showed inflammation and evidence of degenerative joint disease. A couple of days prior to coming to Wilston Vet, Jim had twisted his right leg and was now much more painful. Jim’s left knee had been operated on for a cruciate tear using a de-angelis procedure 7yrs ago. Jim had been doing so well since then so his owners were wondering if Jim’s right knee was also a candidate for the same surgical repair.
