Thanks very much for asking. My wife is springing him from the vet's as we speak. Op did go well but news isn't good He has no cartilage at all in his right elbow joint so its bone on bone - which can only get worse. He's only 6 and is so full of beans but clearly things can't be left as they are. So its either a case of fusing the joint solid (it'll do it naturally in time if we don't), replacement elbow - not be done very much in dogs before or possibly lose the leg in a few years.Nola":3tbhjcx8 said:Hope the op went well Tim?
