My 12 month old Shepherd was dx w/ severe hip dysplasia in her left hip, & mild in her right. I have an appointment a specialist next Saturday, & am trying to do some research.

This surgery seemed like the best especially for Gypsy's age. Has anyone had any experience with surgery? Pros, Cons? Better recommendations?
Thanks in advance!

Old Bitch had it before she was even 1. Both hips were awful, one so severe it was not a candidate for surgery..the other even after correction was still bad. She had an easy recovery and enjoyed physical therapy. Nothing slowed her down and she seemed to be pain and symptom free for years. When she was 10 she had another hip surgery. She is now 11. She is a little more slow to rise and down...but she still frisks about, runs, plays, etc. I was satisfied with the results.
