OBJECTIVE To determine whether bupivacaine peripheral nerve block of the saphenous, tibial and common peroneal nerves proximal to the femoro-tibial joint reduces peri-operative pain following extracapsular surgical stabilization of cranial cruciate ligament rupture in the nonchondrodystrophoid dog. ANIMALS Forty-one dogs with naturally acquired femoro-tibial joint instability. Study design Randomized, controlled, clinical trial. METHODS Dogs diagnosed with suspected cranial cruciate… CONTINUE READING
