My dog has been limping for over a week now. Today I went to the vet and he says 95% positive its a blown acl . Im goin in for an xray which is an additional cost.A specialist checked it out and he agreed… So for TPLO surgery they want 5k wow… And for a more affordable surgery it is 1700… With money being tight and the holidays upcoming, Im looking for a more affordable option ? Any ideas or vet recommendations are helpful. Thank you

do not get the surgery! my dog had the “same thing” we were dragging him on a dog bed to the door just to go to the bathroom but over a couple months he got waaaaaay better! And also if you get one surgery on 1 leg chances are you will most likely have to do the other leg because it will blow out too. We gave my dog a supplement that last months and is around 60$ its from costco and works amazingly!
