"Our dog Finnigan was the same way until he was about 5 months. He would walk until he lost sight of his house and then he would sit down and refuse to budge. I even tried carrying him for about 2 blocks to see if he would start to walk again once he…"

"I think you are making the right decision regarding having the surgery done, Susan. I'm sorry you and Finn have to go through this; I hope that one day soon, you will be able to look at Finnigan running and romping pain free and feel that it…"

"We saw a surgeon last week and Finnigan has hip dysplasia in both hips but his right is much worse than the left. She recommended a total hip replacement so we are being referred to a surgeon at the University of Guelph. If we don't do surgery…"

Susan replied to Susan's discussion Hip Dysplasia
"Update on Finnigan He is now on Metecam for pain and also a joint supplement. He will see a surgeon next week in Guelph. If he plays for more than 5-10 minutes he ends up limping. It is heartbreaking to see him in pain when he is only 11 months old.…"

"Yes, Finn sees an excellent orthopedic specialist/surgeon once a year for an annual exam - or if any problems come up in between. This is the same doc who diagnosed him.  We got a second opinion from University of PA when he was diagnosed.…"

"Susan, your breeder is behaving exactly like a crummy breeder does.  It sounds like she borrowed someone else's contract wording - if your dogs haven't been tested how can you possibly know if their hips are good.  Don't…"
