    ACl/CCL Surgery for Pomeranian?

    Has anyone experienced ACL/CCL surgery for a Pomeranian? Or experience a torn acl and have it naturally healed?

    Going to a specialist in 2 days, but all signs are leading to possibly a low grade acl issue at the moment...

    Impossible to advise. Depends on how bad the tear is, and rest is imperative. What advice did your specialist give?

    Just got back yesterday. Specialist recommends Lateral Suture Stabilization surgery.

    Anyone ever get this surgery done?

    No I haven't personally, but this procedure has been used for many years. IMO if it is suitable for your boy that is preferable to having more drastic surgery on the joint.
    Remember that rest is essential to help the joint stabilise - no jumping on beds or sofas, and no bouncing around. Wishing your Pom a happy result.
