Default Limping diagnosed

Through radiographs DDog is diagnosed with "retained cartilage in his wrist joint. When the growth plate closes and the tibia still grows it will affect the position of his foot and surgery will be needed to free the joint. The prognosis is excellent. Just sucks that he was prescribed Metacam. Any healthier alternatives available that you know of?
Anyone have experience with this condition and how did it turn out?
He also has a very slight case of Pano but the limping is not caused by Pano.
