Went to the vet today. Pup's hips are terrible. Worst my vet has ever seen in a dog this age (he's only 9 months!). I think we are going to route of FHO surgery. Anyone have this done to their dog? My vet says he should lead a very happy, pain free life after recovery. What I read in my research says that it is mostly used on small dogs. He weighs 66lbs right now but is still a growing pup so maybe that's why it will be good for him?
My feed store lady used to work in a vet's office and says they always had really good outcomes from the FHO surgery. So that's good to hear. Feedback?
On a good note, my old man's bloodwork came back awesome! Vet recommended we switch his feed to something that's not chicken. He says a lot of dog's don't maintain weight well on chicken-based food. So switching we are!
