Well, I had posted in the forum about Grover's limp and his recent diagnosis. I just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate everyone's advice and support!
I think I'm still pretty heart broken to hear that he has dysplasia, but don't think I'll be gettin over that anytime soon.
But I do really appreciate being able to come here and get the advice and encouragement! He's my best little friend and I love him SO much. I don't think many of the people in my life really have this kind of attachment with animals. I feel like I can come here and you guys get it.
Thanks! And any advice that you guys have for dealing with hip dysplasia would be much appreciated!
Oh and HAPPY Easter!

Can you tell me a bit more about the symptoms and also what the vets recommend for treating it? My 5 year old Corgi limps on and off -- back right leg bothers him -- especially after a rest after exercise, he seems very stiff and painful. And you understand, he's my bubby, my little soulmate, and I hate to see him in discomfort. We have some Rimadyl (anti-inflammatory) that I give him for a few days, and it seems to clear up, then comes back, sometimes months later.

Daisy and Einstein have it too. Daisy's is worse-she's only 2 and limps a lot when she first gets up. It takes her a while on walks to get going. I feel awful for her but she well loved. We use glucosamine tabs which seems to help some. Good luck with your pup and hope you had a Happy Easter too!

Sorry to hear about the dyplasia. My previous had it. Unfortunately she had a lot of other things wrong with her and is no longer with us. You have probably been told to keep his weight down. That is very important! I understand there are surgeries available but I don' know how successful they are and they are probably very expensive. We just tried to keep her excercise regular, jumping to a minimum, and I found a stroller at a garage sale that folded flat. She loved stting in it for long walks even though people laughed at her. She was fine for walks of about a half hour but much longer was too much for her. He still has a lot of love to give you.
