I wish I could share the X Rays, apparently they have to keep them for 5 years and have to check them out to me if I want to take them out of their offices. And I didn't take them with me. But the surgeon is the best in the area. That's why we have to wait til June because he is completely booked til then.

The vets I have been to put them on CD for me. I told them, I paid for the x-rays and I want a copy.

onyx'girl You could take photo's of the xrays at the vet office, put them on their lightbox and snap away. That way at least you have something with you in case something happens to theirs.
Best wishes for the surgery. I know of a GSD that had both hips done(FHO) before 2yrs of age and he's doing well at 4 yrs old. Keeping the dog lean is most important.

BowWowMeow I was going to ask about x-rays. Glad you did them.

Have you put him on supplements? That can make a HUGE difference.

onyx'girl Wow, how sad....Xrays were the diagnosis, right?
Panosteitis can also make a dog feel lethargic. Can you share the xrays here?

Kaun Poor guy! Good thing you've found out about it, hopefully the surgery will improve his quality of life!

Chip18 Oh crap! I'm so sorry at least you found out early!

Scout's Mama Poor guy. Hope all goes well for you!

Kylebreakiron Well guys, turns out my "low energy" GSD has severe hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia. Which explains why he doesn't do much. Only 9 months old. Total hip replacement will be in June :/ but at least he will feel MUCH better!
