      Im pretty sure they use a scope in all joint surgeries...thats how they see inside the joints. Im just saying I wish in my case I didnt rush to surgery and tried some other things first. the reason I rushed was cause chili was still puppy so figured could heal/fix/recover before got too bad. didnt think of consequences if surgery didnt work and what multiple surgeries means for dogs...its not good imo.

      I wouldnt do surgery unless dog couldnt put weight on leg. if he can walk, i would try supplements, rehab, therapy, etc...1st...surgery last resort.

      Thank you, I will definitely give that some good thought. I will have time to weigh my options since I can't get the surgery until after our vacation. I'll bring the results back to here and see what others think. I know of course it's my decision but I really appreciate all the input. This isn't as clean cut as a CCL or hips.
      Oh, and sorry to hear Chili is limping again.

      when I brought chili in to see surgery team a few weeks ago for a 2nd surgery...both local surgeon and my family friend surgeon recommended against. ofc everycase different...i just know how much I love my chili and if surgery wont fix for ever, then its good to know other methods. chili can still play and go on walks so until he cant do that anymore, surgery out of question.
