Welcome Rich! I have a dog who has severe dysplasia in both hips and is recuperating from her second TPLO. I would suggest that you post your question in the health forum to maximize the number of answers you will get to your question ~ there are quite a few people here who are or have been in your situation who wouldn't normally check-in at Intro's. Make sure to describe the severity of your dog's dysplasia and pre-ACL rupture mobility.
