My lab had a partial tear for about six months, then the full tear. I had the TPL surgery done in March. The vet told me it takes about a year before he could run hard again. First two months were hard, he had trouble getting up and down. He is 8 years old so more of a around the house dog now.
I used Dr. Marcum in Frisco, he was about 2500.00, for the surgery. I think the meds were another couple of hundred dollars.
