3yr.old German Shepherd with Hip Dysplasia
I bought a German Shepherd 3 yrs. ago and found out he has HD.
I was searching for answers for my GS because I was told he has HP he is 3 yrs. old and cry's out after playing or chasing his balls, or when he has laid down for while, he cry's getting up, so I carried him to the vet at that time I was having him neutered, I told the vet about how he acted, so she suggested x-rays while he was under anesthesia, took 3 x-rays, she showed me his pictures.
I was shocked at how bad his sockets had grew not even a C shape, I was devastated over this and so upset because I can't afford to have hip replacement done on him.. and Im thinking my dog is going to have to be on drugs for the rest of his life.Soooooo after I got home I called the breeder I had purchased him from.I told the breeder and I ask him would he be willing to pay for Pharaohs Vet bills, he said legally he don't have to do anything..
I said ok then maybe I 'll just go to Facebook and make a page about how you sell not quality GS and how your page says good genetics. I told him Im going to have laser therapy on my GS and maybe he should pay, I said you can call my vet ask them about the HD.. so he did.. he told them he would pay the 200 for laser but no more, he said he would want me to sign off on that.. so the next day when I took my dog in for his 1st.treatment, I was told he had a really bad attitude about me, and the vet had told him my dog had the HD.
He told them out 16 puppies how the **** can 1 out of the litter have this disease, my vet explained that either or both parents have it or 1 of them have it in the genes and at some time this disease can come out it could effect 1 pup or 3 or a whole littler, if he had the mother dog tested he may have seen she was a carrier of the disease...had her fixed.
but he went on to breed this female which he said she has passed away and the father he had gave away...
so my question is what else can I do to help my 3yr.old GS I have him synovi g4 2 of them once a day.. and the medicine... oh another thing the my vet said they could cut off the top of my GS hip bones! Has anyone ever heard of this? Im really upset about my dog.. and want to help him... his first laser I haven't seen a bit of change so we'll see he has 7 more sessions to go. Hopefully I'll see an improvement...
also I heard he said he didn't have to pay legally I told him to shove it.
so now my main concern is what else can I do for my baby he is in pain, I have started the laser on him yesterday along with caprofen and tramadol
thanks to anyone input.
