Hey Bianca imsorry, I was not saying you are not doing enough! hugging The BC Toby's owner did/does heaps with him too it is just that some dogs (like him) need more than any owner can possible give. I would love there to be a quick fix and what I suggested was not a quick fix just a thought because something mentioned reminded me of Toby.

Sorry, I did not mean to add anything extra for you to do, I just thought if you thought it was a possibility then there might be a way to test for it and if it is part of the problem it might just have to be accepted as part of her and worked around as much as possible. You are currently trying so many things that it must be exhausting for you as it is so I would never intentionally burden you with more.

hugging I forgot to comment on this - is he okay? Shit happens and there is a lot worse that could have happened - at least he is feeling good enough in himself that he wants to do these things, better than just laying down and doing nothing which while easier to cope with would be sadder. Imagine after the surgery and he is all better he will be even more of a livewire - I bet you are looking forward to that??? crazy Take care of yourself, sweetie, things will work out. hugging

I wish it helped, but everybody here loves Molly and Cooper and hurts along with you right now. Cooper is such a adorable soul and to practically be on bed rest must be VERY trying for the whole family. Coop has a very long road ahead of him and that can't be out of your thoughts often and it's almost too much to bear that Molly is a little wacko. I hold out hope that they are basically strong dogs with impeccable care and that will (eventually) add up to improvement.

Bianca, I'm sorry Coop hopped out before you could get his ramp set up. How's he doing? I wish Molly felt better, for your sake as well as hers-- because you love her with all of your heart. You ask for solutions, you try every idea that you can for her. I am wishing Molly, Coopie, and you only smooth sailing and stability from here on out. I wish I had ideas, but I don't. You are keeping on top of Molly's issues and trying everything that you can. hugging goodjob I'm wishing you, Moo, and Cooper an easy day today! peacesign

Oh no Alison, I didn't take it that way at all hugging hugging I will get her running along side my bike soonish!

Thank you so much and Mary Jane and Patti hugging hugging

Coop jumped out so darn quick I didn't have time to drop the ramp and try to catch him. His right leg collapsed under him when he landed and he went over squealing teary My heart was in my throat. But within a few minutes of being inside Mums house, he was trotting along with Molly. Their house is really long - 30 metres so they act like it's a racetrack laugh

Not to de-rail Moo's thread but thank you for asking after my baby doofus. I emailed the surgeon last week to try and set a date and he is still on holidays but replied that he will call me this week. I don't think I can do any more to build up his muscle mass. He needs the surgery now.

Thanks again my friends, we appreciate it hugging

I bought a ramp for Max, but he used to hurt himself trying to avoid it shocked so I undertand Coop!

It would be helpful if you could try to train him on it though, in preparation for the surgery. First with it laying flat on the floor, and then slowly rising one end. For Max I would just help scoop him up from behind his legs and didn't use the ramp (am going to make an agility piece for jazz smile ), but I'm not sure that would be good after a hip surgery.

Anyway, thinking of miss moo! Always!

Thank you so much Lisa hugging I have been trying to get him used to it...nothing like plonking treats along it! Yes it did remind me of training Moo at agility too! What you were doing is what I have always done and sometimes he would squeal and I assumed (wrongly - before diagnosis) that I had squashed his boy bits blush

So far she is back to her normal again. It makes me laugh though as Cooper I am sure is a black Lab with pricked ears - he will eat ANYTHING...but their Sunday Sundae he hates it. It's so funny to see the pathetic look on his face when I won't let him leave his bowl until he eats laugh Moo thinks it's delish thanks very much smile

Oh I forgot to say, the only types of food I can buy here are Canidae( which they are on), Royal Canin, Iams, Science Diet and some working dog brands (cheapish) from the stockfeed shop. I pay $128 for a 13.6 KG bag now so I will have a look on-line and see how much delivery is.

Outrageous cost! When indy was a pup, the only really good food was Innova, Canidae came out later. Of course I tried Innova and it caused a flair of pancreatitis shocked

That would be typical wouldn't it! I really am not sure what to do, their 'output' is fine, Mollys coat is lovely, Coopers is okish but the burping to me indicates something is not right.

I think I can try Taste Of The Wild for about the same price with shipping so I think I will order a small bag and mix it and see how they go. I looked through so many threads on an Aussie forum and a lot (heaps) of people seem to use some of the grainstore working dog food. But they are all full of grains and that's not good is it? Cancer risks etc? If only I gave this much thought to what I eat laugh
