9month old, hip questions
Sasha is 9 months old, weights around 55lbs, skinny but active and healthy. The vet the other day said she felt the rotation of the legs/hips and wasnt very smooth. She said it could be the beginning but its still early to early to tell. The recommend starting Glucosamine and just keeping an eye on her.
Now she doesn't ever seem to be in pain. Sasha LOVES to play ball, and shes crazy rough when chasing the ball! IE, sliding to get it. But after about 15mins I do see her rear leg limp a little. At that point I immediately stop.
So my questions...
Glucosamine of preference? Were trying the Greenies since they label the most MG.
And should I get an xray? DR said it wouldn't hurt too, but since shes still growing that the best time is around 2 years of age.
Also is her crazy way of chasing down the ball going to hurt her long term??
