    So Rigs seems just slightly better today, I can't really tell though because I'm not letting him move much. I am keeping him very quiet. No stairs, no jumping. I pick him up to put him anywhere he needs to go. I called my vet this morning to get an appt for Sat morning just incase he is the same or worse. I wanted to have something scheduled so he wouldn't have to go all weekend if he wasn't doing well. I can always cancel if he is getting better. I just hope he feels better.

    Do any of you have any experience with hip dysplasia? Do you think he should be taking a supplement every day?

    @Rigginsluv11 I don't have experience with it, there's a ton of threads on here though and a great thread in the learning center with x-ray photos. I know there are a lot of people on here that give supplements for hips and joints.

    Banks has it very bad.... she was diagnosed at around 8 months old and is now 8.5 yrs old.... does not stop her at all for being a crazy playful (beeeotchy) dog. as a younger pup we gave her glucosamine and did limit her pay/jumping, but as time passed it seemed to not really cause any issue. still today, she runs and climbs stairs etc. Banks also has a bad spine (fused vertebrae) so she is on a med that blocks the brain from knowing she is in pain

    I'm sorry to hear that Banks has the hip and spine problems but your post does give me a lot of hope. I've been really depressed about this lately. Riggins is only 1 and it makes me so sad that he has been diagnosed so young. So I've just wondered what his life will be like. So thank you for giving me hope that he will be able to live a long and crazy life!

    Wishing you and Riggins all the best. Please let us know how he is doing and if you see the vet what the problem /prognosis is. Miss Tallulah Buster and I send hugs and bully butt wiggles to you and Riggins.

    Just reading now, poor Riggins and you, nothing worse than worrying about them , hope he is better, keep us updated on how the appointment went if you go.
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source
