So I have poured over every thread I could find about young pups with hip dysplasia as I had a feeling I was going to get bad news.
My beautiful, sweet rescue puppy of 7 months that I have only had for 2 months was diagnosed with HD today in both hips.
I found out because I could feel a clicking in his right hip when he sat or walked and a very loud pop sound sometimes when he sat
He once slipped and cried out while playing tug and could not rise for a few seconds. I was about to rush to the emergency vet when he got up and carried on playing like normal. Looking back I believe his hip dislocated
This is the only time he has EVER expressed any pain vocally.
He does not bunny hop (as far as I can tell) runs, plays, jumps, is energetic, doesn't seem to be in any pain at all. He even loves to roll in the grass and stretch his back legs out super far for tummy tickles in the sunshine. You would swear nothing was wrong, except he won't sit straight and he pops. I am so scared he is in pain and just is not showing it.
I have some decisions to make and wanted to post his xrays from today to see what people think. Last shot was the best I am just posting all 3 from the session. I will go the surgical route if it will give him the best life. I am going to see an ortho vet as soon as I can for a consultation.
Thanks for your time.
