Our 11mo old pup has been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease (arthritis) in his front right elbow. The vets at Oklahoma State University want to do surgery but have never seen this in such a small and young dog. Has anyone had this and done the surgery? If the surgery was done was it temporary or long-lasting. The vets are not positive that the surgery will work.
