Opinions please

Please give your opinions. We were told total hip replacement on both sides. We cannot afford that at this time and are looking for other options. We have started a go fund me page and have reached out to a few vets in the area to see if we can get financial help if there are no other options. Thanks

So sorry - no question that these are bad....

Is the dog symptomatic? In pain??? There are threads here about managing bad HD - and plenty about surgery and alternatives....

Can't offer much advice other than I have seen dogs with bad hips live long happy relatively comfortable lives with good management and supplements rather than surgery....

I'm sorry I can't narrow it down for the "OP" (FHO) thing. I know we had a recent thread on this here??

But this is at least, a place to start and maybe start a new thread or tag onto an old one.
