Thanks for the update. I am a little confused though, what exactly has worked for the past three days? Antibiotics?
About anesthesia, your dog is not too old for anesthesia as long as all his organ functions are good as in liver and kidney working well. Even if slightly elevated, dogs that age still do good and the vet knows which anesthesia to use in senior dogs.
My lab mix had surgery last year when he was 11, even with elevated liver values, he did great. He had a cancerous growth removed. He is on meds for the liver values and they are back to normal now.
Anyway, keeping my fingers crossed for your boy, good luck!
