    Independence Library set to reopen next year
    by BRIAN NADIG The Independence Library, 3548 W. Irving Park Road, is expected to reopen by early 2017 after a fire gutted the facility last October, but city officials are investigating the possibility of building a new library elsewhere some day. The library has been closed since the fire, which started in a nearby business.

Canine ACL Surgery

I was told my dog has a torn ACL...where is the best place to go for this surgical procedure in the city? I heard that UIC has a veterinary clinic that can do it but the numbers I've found don't call back. Has anyone out there ever personally been through this surgery with their canine? Prices seem to be all over the place
place. Thanks!

  • Artus, the person who posted the tiggerpoz.com site has the screen name on here with the name "None". I was saying that website is good that he/she posted. "None" above posted: .http://tiggerpoz.com it is helpful to look at all alternatives to TPLO. I still suggest getting an ACL tear surgically fixed but a partial you can rest a dog on but it must be strict and with meds. Good luck!

    I went to Fox Lake Hospital as well and had a successful surgery. It was a tough decision deciding to operate on my dog (5 year old beagle at the time), but in the end I truly believe it was worth it. Besides the hospital treatment and surgery that happened flawlessly, the recovery was easier than I had expected and with 0 complications. Obviously other people aren't always as lucky but we did just fine. One thing I would suggest to people going through this is looking into getting a knee brace for the post-op period. We got the Ortocanis dog knee brace (http://www.ortocanis.com/en/technical-helps-for-dogs/90-knee-brace.html) and I do believe that the support it provided was a big plus in my dog's whole recovery process. I'm just thankful we came out of this so well.
