Amazing how quickly you caught it and how quickly they figured it out and treated it. Whew. I am so glad.

He is one of the most handsome dogs.

I am going to ask a question because I am a worry wart. While any surgery can lead to infection I would guess, I believe (but am not totally sure) that the THR is one that has a higher rate of it? Would his history of infection indicate that possibly an FHO might be a safer fix? I am sure they can also get infection from that as well, my understanding is that it is a lower risk (but I do not have the numbers/references to back that up so it's just in talking to my vet). Like I said, this is a worry wart question!

Thank you all again hugging

You can see in the photo's his right eye (left in pics) is squinty. I just went to give him a treat before and he must have opened his mouth too wide as he squealed frown

Jean, that is really interesting, thank you so much. I will email the surgeon and let him know what has happened and ask him.

That's the thing, I am now so scared that when he does have the surgery he is going to be at great risk of complications.

Apparently one of the main characteristic to diagnose this is the screaming when opening the mouth.

Handsome, handsome Cooper, be still my heart! What Jean is mentioning is worth discussing with your vet(s), methinks. Less risk of infection in a dog with his history, would be something to consider, if either surgery would work for him well enough. Bianca, count on ongoing good thoughts for Cooper!

I agree for sure in telling Cooper's hip surgeon about this. I think because there is an implant used, the risk of infection is greater. I remember when my mom had her hips done, she couldn't even shave her legs the week before because if she had the slightest cut on her legs they would not be able to do the surgery for fear of there being an underlying infection that could flare up post op.

Scary stuff. So glad he is back home and on the mend!

What a handsome dog. Wow! I am so glad this was caught early so it is easier to take care of. I love the black GSDs.
