A few weeks back, my beautiful and normally active 11.5 year old pup developed an ACL/CCL tear in his hind leg. We brought him immediately to the vet and it was confirmed. We are now struggling about what our options are. We put in him on Rimadyl and he seems to be bearing weight on the leg about 50-75%. The liver enzymes started to climb after two weeks so we abandoned the Rimadyl and we are now treating him with Galliprant. He’s been on Galliprant for about a week and it has about the same effect as Rimadyl. He also needs to lose about 10lbs. My wife an I are not sure about putting him through the operation at 11.5 years old. Money is not the problem, as I more concerned with recovery time and benefits of surgery. I also heard either way that a tear on the other leg is highly probable regardless of surgery. At this very moment, he can walk on it, and bare weight. He does jump on the couch and attempts to run. I want to do the right thing for him and I would appreciate advice.
