To TPLO or Not to TPLO

Arrrgggg!!!! Zoey seems to have ruptured her CCL and the vet recommends TPLO surgery asap. The surgeon she recommends at DMV chages $3500!

I of course came home and started Googling and found many many reviews indicating that this surgery is not all the vets/surgeons claim it is. The best number is 10.6 % success rate. That 's not very good.

They indicate that extreme activity limiting will eventually have the same effect as the surgery. regular vet is on mat leave. I trust her 100% Been my vet since I got Ginger in 2001. I don't really trust this vet. Don't know what to do.

Any input/advice/suggestions????? Don't want Zoey to suffer but don't want to make her suffer for nothing either.

Mum to Ziggy (6) and Zuzu (5), Zoey (8) and Raggzy (3) Keena (2) own little Heaven!

We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness.
