 Hello All, 

 

Since the beginning of September I've been taking my pup to the dog park, I noticed really quickly how slow he was running. He also tired very quickly.....I thought maybe he wasn't the best runner since he was still growing but even with other puppies around he was the slowest one. This progressed to noticing him running sideways, giving up and just lying down and taking days to recoup after the park. I finally had him get x-rays for my own peace of mind and sure enough he has hip dysplasia in one hip. 

 

The vet has recommended a triple pelvic osteotomy, I was just curious if anyone has done this surgery and how has your dog done? My little guy loves to run and I can't imagine at such a young age having to take away one of his passions forever. In addition since he's been young and going to puppy pre-school whenever we went into the gym during agility training he just stopped and watched almost in awe, so I was never planning on competing with him but maybe someone whose had a fur baby that's been able to do agility after the surgery would be great too! 

 

Thanks for any and all info you could share!

Hello, I'm so sorry to hear about your puppy.  The only help I can offer is a FaceBook page (1) Canine Health, Breeding and Puppy Care.  I find this group very helpful. Best wishes to you and your pup.

That's a very tough situation. I am praying for the success of your fur-baby's operation. Best of luck!
