14 year old terrier, 17lbs. Vet subscribed EtoGesic for arthritis in back legs which has helped, but now she has infection and needs to be spade. Question, at this age, how will the surgery affect her?
Well, if she has a pyometra you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. She will die of the pyometra if you do not go ahead with the surgery. If she is healthy otherwise, then I do not see any serious problems with going ahead with the sugery. I am sure she will feel better after surgery. vetcare
