There were three options given to us by the vet:
- Do nothing and hope that it heals; few do.
- Get a brace, which would eradicate pain, and hope that it heals; about 50/50 chance.
- Have surgery and hope that it doesn't happen again; some do.
Surgery is expensive. I know the surgeon, he used to actually be our vet, but his prices were very expensive so I had to switch to another vet. How ironic that we'd end up right back where we started. Maybe.
