The surgery that the vet has performed will give him back approximately 30% of the strength that he had in his natural ACL, hopefully that is enough to get him by and lead a normal doggy life again.
He's doing well, although completely confined to indoors at the moment. He has had a minor set back today, his wound has opened up so back to the Vet tomorrow for some minor surgery to stitch him back up and bring him back on track. We are hopeful that next week he will start some physiotherapy and short walks. Hopefully in around six weeks time he will be back to spending his days outside chasing birds around his backyard!
Will keep you posted.

Some post op pictures after round two of stitching (stapling) the wound togther. Hopefully the Elizabethan Collar will keep him away from removing his own stitches!
