Terry if he is not limping all the time there is no need for surgery. Not at his age. And true, even after surgery they can still get arthritis. Alex never did tho. We HAD to go the surgery way because he was limping. One thing you can do is make sure that he is not jumping. Alex was a jumper even after his surgeries.

I have a friend whose dog had paralyzed legs. One of the first things she was told to do was massage. The dog has made a complete recovery. I am with you on not having surgery especially at his age.
Wishing you the best.

it does sound like you are making the best choice not having the surgery....that's great news. I agree, why put him thru it when there's no signs now of any discomfort now and both vets feel the same.

I appreciate everyone's messages.... Thanks for taking the time to offer your support in my decision.

Quincy has no limping ... or the hop/skip... In fact other than this recent bout that concerned me he hadn't had any limp... but did for a day around Thanksgiving..then back to normal.. then couple weeks later the pulled up leg which I felt was maybe the knee popped out and needed to be manually corrected.

Now, he's back to his normal.

Thankfully he is not a jumper at all!!! ... and I carry him up/down stairs.

I truly have high regard for the benefit of massage! I recall after Missy's knee surgeries ( torn ACLs) I did massage on her after a few days home ( started off very slow and increased as days went on) and the vet mentioned how pleased he was with her advanced progress when we took her in for stitches out a couple weeks later.

Sooo now my boy will be getting his dental.. Tuesday for anals/nails/ and bloodwork... and dental will be scheduled at that time. I assume in a week or so.

Default Quincy> we're holding off surgery

I totally agree that you made the right decision! The Dasuquin with MSM may be a great choice for Quincy. I hope he has many great years of health! You're a wonderful mommy

Terry, I think that's a good choice for Quincy. He's lucky to have such a good mommy who thinks everything out and obtains good medical advice.
