for now. 15mins of ice 2 or 3 times per day. crate rest for at least 2 weeks. 2 months of hand walk only to prevent running and jumping. (also try to prevent leash pulling).
if you decide to talk to a surgeon. they will ALWAYS say surgery is necessary.
if you consult a therapist. they will normally suggest conservative management unless the joint is completely blown.
