Hi Edel - I posted on the "other" board as well. We had the surgery done on Shelby's left knee when she was a year old. She was a grade 2 progressing to a grade 3 after 6 months of exercise and glycoflex. We were not successful through the first surgery and had to have it redone (very unusual!) but all is well now. Shelby turned 2 in October and is doing wonderfully! I would get a 2nd opinion. We met with our vet and then met with a surgeon who recommended the surgery. Turns out she did surgery on Jake's mouth for cancer 3 weeks later . Both of them are doing great over a year later.
Loving mom to Jake, Shelby and Micah
