Hi everyone! I was wondering if I could get some opinions and/or past experiences with your German Shepherds please? I have a beautiful 9 month old female GSD named Della who began limping on her front right leg back in May. After a trip to the vet, I was told it was growing pains and to take it easy for a while. After about a week of bed rest, Della was completely back to her normal, playful self. However, a little over a week ago, her limp returned. I brought her to the vet again and had X-rays and a CT on her arm. Although there has been nothing visibly wrong in her X-rays or CT, the vet believes it is elbow dysplasia and is encouraging surgery. Has this happened to any of you? I absolutely want to do surgery if it is going to help Della. However, I’m slightly skeptical because I do not want to put her through surgery if it is not going to help her and it is something else that is causing her pain. Thanks in advance!
