Our 8 month-old Maltese has an open fontanel and now we found out she might need surgery for her knees. Does anyone know how surgery will affect a dog with an open fontanel? is an open fontanel common in this breed? Does anyone have a simular situation? She's so little & precious, we don't want to jeopardize her health, but we're very concerned. thanks for any advise.
