Tomorrow is Mercedez's 4th Birthday. Unfortunately she will be spending it at the Vet's office under anestesia. She hasn't been walking at all on her hip replacement leg. The vet would like to take X-rays to see if the ball and cup are moving or if it is an infection! I would hate to have to operate again. This would be the third time!! Well when she gets home there will be a Birthday Cake and lots of doggie friends waiting to celebrate with her. I will keep you updated on her hip. I am hoping it is just an infection that will clear up with anitbiotics!!
aw, sorry to hear about mercedez's limping. hoping it's nothing serious. good thoughts out to her!
Poor Mercedez, I hope it isn't too serious
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! to your sweet girl. She'll really appreciate her birthday celebration when she gets home!

Poor thing! What a way to spend your 4th birthday :-\
But I have a feeling mom will make it up to you when you get home. Hope it's something that can be fixed soon and you can be back on all fours in no time!
Happy Early 4th Birthday!
My poor Grandbaby. It seems every time her fur starts to grow back.......
Thinking positive thoughts for her, and hoping it's something very minor.
Hope it clears up soon. Happy birthday, Mercedes.
