TheDogPlace launched 1998 as the "World's First Public Website" Welcome to TheDogPlace Video Theater, 1st to use sight and sound to entertain and inform.


VIDEO THEATER uses sight and sound to explain leg injuries or inherited defects such as patella, knee joint, and cruciate ligament problems resulting in lameness and pain.






Dr. Michael Bauer, DVM, DACVS of Colorado Canine Orthopedics discusses the diagnosis of canine Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tears. Why palpation alone is inaccurate, X-rays can be helpful, but the best diagnostic tool is an arthroscopic examination.  It is extremely accurate and very non-invasive (great video example of healthy vs. torn).
