My dog is going in for a surgery - luxating patella in two

Hi, my dog is going in for a surgery - luxating patella in two weeks. After the surgery he will have to stay in confinement for 3 months slowly increasing daily activities. He is a large breed (cane corso) and we the biggest cage - I think he will be uncomfortable 24/7 in it coz even though it's the biggest size it's limiting for him - he won't be able to lay on a side with straight legs etc. I have a metal pen in a spare room 3 times the size of the cage - and I was wondering if it will be ok to keep him there. Now the pen doesn't have a cover on top. I can probably fix a bed sheet on top of necessary - but is it necessary to have a top cover ?Do you think it'd be ok keeping him there?

My dog (14 lb.) schnauzer mutt mix, 8 yrs. old cannot eat

My dog (14 lb.) schnauzer mutt mix, 8 yrs. old cannot eat normally the past few days. He wants to eat, but cannot pick food up from his bowl. He also has difficulty drinking. I hold wet kibble up at his face level and he eats from the left side of his mouth. The vet found nothing wrong with him yesterday, but saw the difficulty in eating. She took xrays, nothing really. She said neck pain and prescribed metacam for 7 days. However he can move his head and neck normally. For the 4th day in a row he cannot bark. He tried to bark at the doorbell a few minutes ago and made a growl that sounded like he was trying to bark.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: HarleyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Harley?Customer: No. I told her we adopted him when he was 4 yrs. old and he had heart worm which was treated. he had his annual exam and vacs a week and a half earlier from a different vet at the practice.
