Charlemagne (Charlie) has two completely torn cruciate ligaments in both his hind legs. Unfortunately, because Charlie is 150 lbs and only 2 years old he will need surgery and likely rehab on both knees. The procedure is called Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) surgery and each surgery is approximately $3300.
We have been told by our veterinarians that this is a common issue with giant breeds, and there is still hope he can live the healthy and rambunctuous life any young pupper deserves.
