2 years ago we bought a French mastiff from a breeder in Oklahoma, we will keep names out since they have discontinued breeding. Supposedly all dogs are hip checked, so we decided to go for it since this is an awesome breed. We did have a contract saying if puppy was found to have hip dysplasia before a year old, we would get half our money back. Well my vet said they don't check until after a year old. This past December, we noticed he was hunching his back, and when he would stand from a lying position he would yelp out in pain. We took him to the vet for xrays and he was diagnosed with moderate hip dysplasia. He was given pain meds which helps a lot but the future is what we worry about. Hip replacement is very expensive and won't be an option for a while. So my question is, is there anything we can do to help him or relieve pressure/pain. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
