So sorry to hear this. I think only your vet will be able to give you an idea of how life will be for him as all dogs are different with hd and its progression. I'm sure your supplements and oils will help with joint aid and as a bonus, coat condition too. I use Fish4dogs Salmon Oil which is high with omega oils which are important for joints. Have a further chat with your vet as you may have to look at diet too if there is a long term restriction of exercise. Best of luck :)

I've seen online friend dogs do really well after surgery. Is he insurerd?

It may be that you have to wait for him to finish growing before they can do anything, and maybe the care you can give him over the following months might help to limit the damage as he grows. Like an awful lot of conditions only time will tell. I hope things go well for him. Never had a dog with this but I've met and seen an awful lot who have - they seem to cope.

Good luck and keep possitive and hope for the best The vet found a growth during a scan last month and was sure it was cancer. He was putting our red dog to sleep but opening him up first just to make sure. I'm now BROKE - but my dog is now alive and well. The most hopeless outlook can still offer hope. Just stay possitive and wait to see how this develops. It is amazing what they can do! Good luck. xx

yeah iam trying to stay positive spoke to another vet at our practice today and he said they can re xray at one and a possible hip replacement but he said that would be about 10 000 pounds and he would not have it done if it were his dog but we can hope it doesnt come that he seems really sore and has now started being agressive to other dogs which the vet said may happen iam just hoping he can come through it

Im sorry to hear about your boy :(

If you look through this thread it talks about HD and how the dogs and owners cope. It should also give you an idea of where you stand with your boy and what you can do to make him feel more comfortable.

Been back to the vets with milo, he has now been refered to a specalist about his hd. He has now started limping on the front right paw too,we told the vet and she said the specalist would check that too. Milo's appointment is next monday which I am very pleased about as we can now get answers and ask other questions we have. Fingers crossed it's good news and we can get him sorted, thanks very much for the link. We have read so much about it now things seem alot more clear, and hopefully it will be a positive visit on monday. x

So sorry to hear about Milo. Have you heard of stem cell therapy for dogs. It sounds really good and from what I've read is a lot cheaper than surgery. Check out this website. (you will have to cut and paste) I hope this helps.
