Upon physical manipulation the joint was found to be very unstable and it had a positive cranial drawer on CTT (cranial tibial translation). TTA (tibial tuberosity advancement) surgery scheduled.

Radiographs from previous vet showed mild inflammation of the fat pad of the left stifle. Currently on Rimadyl. Physical exam found no cranial drawer. CBC, blood chemistry, and T4 were all WNL.
