    Hi everyone,
    Got back home from Slovakia in early hours. My best mate (my Jack Russell bitch) was limping around the house. Mrs came down to tell me she pulled up down Barry Island beach after leaping up on to a low wall. She took her to a Vets, that I am not overly keen on, and their thoughts are she has Cruciate ligament issues that will require surgery and could cost 1k.
    I am not being tight or trying to avoid spending money on the 'Love of my Life', but I would like to consult other vets first. Hence coming on here, where I know there are many dog lovers that hopefully can point me to a reputable Vets for second opinion.
    For info, she seems to be moving around okay and can leap up on to settee, though she has problems getting through the dog flap to back garden.
    Any advice much appreciated.
    SJB

    We used Cumines Veterinary Surgery in Evansfield Road, Llandaff North about five years ago and found them to be very good. Not sure if they are still there but looking on the web they may now be called Medivet. Good luck.

    They are absolutely brilliant down there.

    I just checked his bio, richard won vet of the year in 2017.

    He saved me loads of money with sam with his honesty regarding his allergies

    Vets for Pets Llanrumney are great but I'd go @Nugent 's for you.Less travel. Are you sure it's not a pulled muscle. Mine do it all the time cause they are loons off the lead. Usually settles after a day or two.

    thoughts exactly
    My thoughts exactly Joe. But the Mrs panicked into taking her along to the nearest Vet. The dog is still sprightly and is not showing signs of much pain, just got that 'sorry for any trouble' sort of look.

    Id wait till Monday. Emergencies only probably over the weekend anyway. Keep an eye mate. Dogs are tremendous healers from muscle stuff in my experience. I've had dogs forever. See how she gets on.

    I’ve got a Jack Russell and she is always getting sprained/pulled muscles. As you probably know Jacks are basically lunatics off the lead running, jumping etc Every few months she pulls up limping. She hobbles about for a few days then she is right as reign a few days later
    Unless she is in real discomfort, If I was you I would see what she is like in a few days before taking her to vet hopefully she will be ok by then

    We've never had any problems with them to be fair but I have heard a few complaints over the years.

    Hope the little fella is ok though. :thumbup:

    I couldn't stand them. Ripped me right off compared to vale vets.
    Gave me loads of tablets to treat Sam's skin allergies. I was fed up of constantly paying out per month.

    Went to vale vets and Richard said no more tablets. Waste of money.
    Give him a different diet , and buy cheap piriton from chemists.

    Why is everyone not going to him.
    The UK's 2017 winner of vet of the year is practicing in Barry.
