Dog hip problems
« on: May 27, 2006, 12:08:31 PM »
My Dog(10 lbs) has had problems with his hip causing him pain. 

We took him to the vet and had Xrays done.  It turns out that
he has a disease named Aseptic Femoral Necrosis or Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease
(Basically a degenerative disease of the head of the femor)

The vet said they need to do surgery to shave the diseased portions off.  Looking on the internet this is the best course of treatment.

My question is, has anyone had dog who has had hip surgery?
How did they do afterwards?(2months, 2 years, 6 years afterwards?)

The very pants I was returning!
