Hi thanks for the query.

From the complaints you had described it could be signs of wear and tear in the knee. The dog bite and the injury could be on of triggering event in causing of pain. The MRI scan is showing signs of wear and tear which is common in knees over 40 or 50 years above. I advice you to visit local orthopedician and get advice regarding further treatment.
