Re: Hip dysplasia, bad joints-10.5 month old

For the Stretched legament you want to do a few weeks of restircted activity so it can have a chance to heal up.

I am glad your breeder is working with you and I would also second, third or what ever getting a second opinion.

How many hip xrays does your Vet take to be sent in for certification? Is there an Ortho Vet some where around where you live, even if you have to travel for 3 - 4 hours it might be worth using them as the secondopinion or a Vet school.

I have a female that was OFA rated as Mild dysplasia, she is 7 1/2 now and shows mild signs of her hip bothering her. I am trying to find a joint supplement that agrees with her tummy. To me mild dysplasia is easy to work with.
