We visited the two specialists yesterday and they both said Cooper needed a THR on his right hip and see how he manages with that. I have to try and build some muscle mass on him before surgery so it will not be before Christmas. His hips would apparently probably be in the 80/90 score.

Latest xrays.

Aw..man. I just saw this thread. I really hate to hear of Cooper's hip issues. Dang. I'm glad you were able to catch it early. Hopefully he'll do well with the THR and have a short, easy recovery.

Just updating this thread, Cooper will finally be having the right side hip replacement on Wed Feb 27th.

I have to drop him off the day before and then pick him up on the Saturday. I am nervous as all heck but so glad he is finally going to have a good chance at being a normal puppy (after rehab).
