My 3 year old boxer has had a terrible year. He had emergency surgery for a testicular abscess which turned to septicemia, two more General anesthesia’s after this for scrotal ablation as the infection would not respond to treatment, 4 urinary tract infections and one sedation for bladder washout. He had kennel cough and a chest infection after this.He now has a sore right knee from being bouncy. The vet said it could be a ligament which is torn or ruptured and suggested putting him under General anesthesia on Monday and surgery if needed. His knee responded last month to rest and pain relief, so would you let him have a 4th GA or would it do more harm than good after this year of illnesses? what alse can I do for him that is not so invasive until his body gets better?
