Knee Injury

My dog injured her knee on a hike, she favored her right hind leg for some time so I took her in for an xray. They said she damaged her knee, had a bone spur on it and should have surgery. They put her on a pain killer/anti-inflammatory medication which helped but she started limping again when she was off. Do you believe surgery is the only way? Would turmeric and other anti-inflammatory supplements help?

As you can see with the medication she was taking, once the anti-inflammatory medication is withheld the limp returns. If the medication is a homeopathic the same will happen once the medication is stopped. The most common knee injury is a torn anterior cruciate ligament and surgery is quite effective.
