    I'm planning on getting my dog to the vet asap (although they are closed today, as they serve another community in our area) but am looking for some feedback. Our pup, Mowat, is about 18 months old. We've been fostering a 9-mth-old rescue dog for the past month or so and about two weeks ago...

    Does anyone out there have experience with a hip brace for hip dysplasia? My elderly, arthritic dog is starting to have more trouble with his left hip from dysplasia, and I came across the braces on the web. But before I put out the $80, I was hoping to hear from some folks who have used...

    So, I adopted Nigredo about 10 days ago. I began to notice strange things. He "frog sits" all the time and always "leans" to the same side. He also sometimes "bunny hops" up the stairs and he runs with his back legs stuck together. His back feet point outwards a LOT as well. He gets around fine...

    Well, I took my dog in to get xrays for hip dysplasia. Turns out she has it in the left leg a bit more than the right. She is only two. I picked her up at 5pm last night and shes been whining ever since. I took her back for fear she was in pain and they just gave me another pain killer. I feel...

    LOL not really. My 1 year old australian shepherd mix doesn't actually EAT the bed, but he's destroyed 6 (yes, six) of them. Here's the deal: - Wesley needs A LOT of physical exercise and mental stimulation. Destructive when bored. He's also in the adolescent stage: knows what's right/wrong...

    I have a rottweiler that will be 2 years old next month and has started to limp the last couple of days. I have done a little research on hip dysplasia and am a little nervous that she could have it. She has always had a little swagger in her step but when watching videos of rottweilers walking...

    My 10 month lab-mix was just diagnosed with hip dysplasia. He has been gimpy for about two months. I was referred to a specialist who informed me that the TPO surgery was not an option. My only two options are the FHO and the total hip replacement. Despite it's significantly higher cost, I...

    Kai and I had the surgeon visit on Monday morning. His hip is completely out of any socket he might have had. It's almost like the side of the femur head (instead of the top) is now rubbing against the upper side of his hip bone...poor guy. Dr. Devitt mentioned all 3 types of options for Kai...
