Vet is recommending TPLO on my 12 year old almost 13 female boxer. I am having second thoughts on going through with surgery and am considering getting a brace and going on a less invasive option. My concerns are her age, recovery and healing potential... Vet says age should not be a concern..... but it is to me. I appreciate the input. I did search the forum, but couldn't find a previous thread for same dog age. Thanks!
