my puppy have hip dysplasia due to slippery Tiles, her parents are fine,
we have done xray, her both hip joints are totally out,
vet university said there is no chance of any operation now. they cant do any thing,
what should i do?
There are always options. Find another opinion. I also highly doubt that slippery tiles was the SOLE cause. HD can happen with parents who are OFA cleared. Did both parents have hip clearances or was it just the vet saying the parents' hips were fine?
thanks for reply,
i visted another vet,
there is Big Vet in our Location, popular in Our Country,
he was also Champion of Horse Riding,
its listened to that he treated and fixed those issue where other Vets declined to see,
i visted yesterday, he checked her Heartbeat and he suddenly told that, "why you gave her Slippery Surface and why you didnt stopped her to Climb Stairs?"
i said what is her desiece?
he said She have Rickets(something like he said)
he said due to Rickets, Weak bones and Extremely Week Muscles arent allowing to Fit the Ball in the Socket,
he said She have HUGE COW HOCK LEGS, yes she have,
he told me to come for 7 days, her clinic is 20 km far away :P
he also gave me a Big Bottle of Cyrup, it have Vitamin B, D2,D3, Gulucosamine,etc
he said it will take 3 months to correct,
i think i should keep this medication,
i would also visit University, will collect many Opinions,
My dog had a complete hip luxation when he was hit by a car. He had the femoral head osteoctomy surgery. I am sure there are surgical options for your pup too. I'd seek a second opinion.
So sorry to hear about your puppy. We know this university vet hospital to be among the great ones: Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University | Healing Animals, Helping Humans, Transforming Global Health They treated a German Shepherd dog we had some years ago for a cancerous tumor of the brain. He went on to live a long life.
