Max was x-rayed yesterday and shoulders, elbows and left hip are good, right hip however is not good, options given were hip replacement, keep him lean and do salvage surgery when it gets worse, now my questions are this what should I expect from the breeder, he is guaranteed and she is very reputable, and what supplements can I give him to help him out now, also what is the price range for the surgery, so confused but love my dog, he is almost 10 months

I can't answer all your questions, but my female dog had a total hip replacement when she was a little over a year old (she is a GSD mix, about 40 lbs). It cost roughly $4000. I have her on two supplements which are Glycoflex 3 and Jointagen. The surgery really helped her. If you can afford it, I think it is your best option. (<---- personal opinion)
