Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear this. In my opinion surgery should still be considered, even if considerable arthritis is present as it will have a much better longterm outcome for Saffy. If your vet is not confident with this then I would recommend asking for referral to an orthopaedic surgeon.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice. Thank you for using Just Answer. Best wishes.
