|Marty McFly||Thanks everyone. We discussed FHO surgery. He's referring us to an ortho surgeon. And gave us Carprofen for pain. No supplements or diet changes.|

So sorry to hear that he has severe HD.. Your poor boy
He still looks like a very happy lad indeed though!
Hopefully your vet will set you up with some glucosamine supplements and pain medications and long term surgery ideas/plans.

So sorry Marty. I was hoping for better news. I wouldn't wish for anyone to go through this. It was very hard news for me.
Luckily your dog is young enough for a FHO.

My pup was diagnosed at 6 months. Ortho vet said only xrays could diagnose hd. Unfortunately my dog also bunny hopped but only on a run. Not on a walk. Hips swayed alot when walking, that was one of the reasons we had xrays done. He also didnt like anyone near his hip area. He also had pano which caused him to limp intermittently.
Hopefully uour boy is just having growing pains, but xrays can diagnose it either way. Finding out early gives you better options. If its pano the vet can give you something to reduce pain and inflammation.

|carmspack||sorry to say I would have to agree with the vet. Get an x ray to get the information that you need in order to make your best decessions.|
