Dear Colorado Canine Orthopedics
Two years ago our Shorthaired Pointer black lab mix "Juicy Fruit" started to limp after playing ball and unfortunately was diagnosed with a torn ACL by our local vet, our vet referred us to multiple facilities in Denver that could handle this type of injury and we visited three of them. The visits we made in Denver made us more skeptical about the surgery and in no way comforted us into letting our pup be operated on.
