    DefaultHello All

    Hi, I'm new here, justto introduce myself & my Chocolate Lab, Amelie. We live in France, I'm English, but Amelie is French, born near Montpelier.
    Unfortunately Amelie has problems with her hips, and I was hoping for some advice from other owners who have Labs with similar problems.

    The vet has said we should wait a while & do an X ray under anesthetic. Her Problem shows when she gets up from sleeping - she is stiff & limps. Also if she plays with other dogs she is stiff the next day. The vet has given anti inflammatory drugs to help.

    The main problem at the moment is getting her in the car. We have a RAV 4 & she can't jump in over tailgate.
