Not sure how those hips will avoid at least one surgery?

Indy's surgery was at 14 months, and I know it provided her significant relief. I really do think that when a young dog has really bad hips, there's no sense in waiting, once they are old enough.

All that said, I'm very interested to hear what this surgeon has to say!

Yes I think it is ...curious. The only thing I could think of was that perhaps it is a bit like Lauri posted. That he already effectively has an FHO? I don't know.

Lisa I agree. The more I have read and looked, to me it seems he will need surgery and that is all there is to it. But will see what he says.

Well some good(ish) news! I received the Jointagen today so he has had the first dose. Darn it though I only ordered 1 to make sure he would be ok and didn't realise there is a loading dose...so this will only last 1 month hammer Still waiting on the Glycoflex 3.

So on the 8th of October we are going into the big smoke laugh and at 10.45am have an appointment with one specialist and then at 12pm we go to the other specialist. Not long now and at least we will have 2 more vets actually examine him. One of these two will be the surgeon we use.

and just cos:

That red toy looks so good against the black coat of your gorgeous boy. Here's hoping the 8th brings some good news.

Bianca,

I do admire your priorities. You're dedicated to getting all the information you need to make the best choice for Cooper's long and healthy life crossedfingers, without ever loosing the puppy in the planning.

We'll all be here, waiting to see what you learn about your pretty boy and his wacko hips.

MJ

Thank you my friends hugging He is a stunning boy hey!!! wub

I was logging on to post that I think the previcox must be helping because the last few days he has launched himself at me, on the couch and he is so happy. He can't get his back legs up but he hasn't tried before???

But then he just got up off his bed and it looked like he was struggling to get up. Roll on October.
