Took him to the vet today. The reason why I took him was because he was showing most of the signs of hip dysplasia like sway walk, side sit, doesnt jump, underdeveloped hind quarters and overdeveloped chest. All these symptoms fit so perfectly. Anyways, I took him to the vet today, and I told the vet that I think my dog has hip dysplasia. He asked me to walk my dog back and forth. He agreed that my dog may have hip dysplasia, but the only way to tell for sure is for an xray. I don't have that much money on me, but I will be getting money around the 14th of feb. I'm gonna take the x-rays and confirm if he does have hip dysplasia or not. After that, I will be considering saving up money so I can do Total Hip Replacement surgery for my dog. But this surgery requires that he has to full mature and develop, so I'm gonna wait until he's 1-2 years old. My question is, when he gets older, lets say for example he loses his limb function and cannot use his hind legs anymore, due to the degenerative effects of hip dysplasia, would I still be able to give him Total Hip Replacement? Or once he cannot use his hind legs anymore, then there isn't anything we can do? I really didn't think it would happen to my Sammy. I been thinking about this a lot lately and I think it was my fault because I think i fed him a little too much when he was at his growing stage. Now I kinda regret it... Any help would be appreciated right now...thanks.
