About the registry
Whilst treating cruciate ligament injury in dogs (similar to a knee ligament injury in humans) is the most common orthopaedic surgery performed, we still don’t have a clear understanding of the best surgical treatment to offer, which surgical techniques are being performed and how well, or poorly, they work.
RCVS Knowledge’s free Canine Cruciate Registry provides the opportunity to gather this information in an open, honest, and transparent way, and without any commercial bias. It relies on information reported by you, and by your veterinary surgeon. The registry is the first of its kind, in the veterinary profession, anywhere in the world.
If you decide to take part in the registry, your veterinary practice will register your email address and we will send you a series of questions about your dog. We will keep in touch with you before and after your dog’s surgery and ask you to provide information about your dogs’ recovery.
If you are not currently part of the registry, but would like to be, please speak to your veterinary surgeon.
