So earlier this week someone trying to join the forum reached out to me because she couldn't get the captcha to load.... she tried other browsers and just couldn't get it to work for her.... so I'm posting this for her Carina's email Hi, I am hoping for some advice with my 1 year old DDB who was just diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia. I was told by his vet that he needed a hip replacement for both hips which, unfortunately, is not an option financially for us. I have taken him to 2 other vets..all of them said it was pretty bad for such a young dog. He has not had any pain or difficulty standing, sitting or running..until a few weeks ago when he was playing in the yard and yelped .. he lifted his left leg and wouldn’t put weight on it. He sat down for a minute and got up and was back to walking fine ( this is still happening if he runs or jumps .. which we are stopping when we see) This was why I took him to the vet and got the xrays. He also has something strange going on at the bottom of his legs but the vet said his legs look fine (they buckle at the hock ..probably need to start a whole new post for that issue and include a video)I’m wondering if anyone had any luck with any supplements or exercises to help with his hips so that they don’t get painful. I was given carprofen from the vet which he has been taking once a day and he gets consequinDS daily.
