We’re worried that our vets are more interested in our money rather than our puppy’s health.
Can anyone on here look at this X-ray and see if there is anything or concern?

What did the vet say was wrong?
I'm no expert on xrays but that looks like a break at the top of the tibia?
Or is that a CCL tear?

There's no harm in asking for 2nd opinion but I wouldn't rely on Internet for diagnosis. People study for years to be able to interpret xrays. In the UK we're shielded from the cost of private healthcare so when we're quoted for veterinary treatment it's a bit of a shock; but it's the same equipment and level of expertise that is required in human medicine x

Something on the X-ray doesn’t look quite right to me but I am a complete layman and have no medical training.

What has the vet diagnosed?

Getting a second opinion is perfectly reasonable and acceptable though imo.

Another one here with no medical experience, but I was thinking that the head of the tibia doesn't look particularly well rounded and may be wearing away.
If you’re not happy with your vets either change to another one or ask for a referral to an orthopaedic specialist practice.

We are told it's a puppy, so wearing away seems unlikely.

There's a knobby bit sticking out of a joint at the bend?

Courtesy of my complete lack of degree and training.

(Show the X ray to another vet and ask for a second opinion if you're concerned)
