    Thank you for the clarification. Colossus does both, I have an appointment with the Vet to get his boosters this weekend, so Ill have him double check his hips. He did a very thorough check on his hind quarters when I took him in right after I got Colossus, and didnt mention anything about loose hips, but did mention a left knee cap. Ive checked Colossus' hips too, and didnt notice anything "loose."

    Minnie just had the JPS surgery at 15 weeks. The outlook is very good. We are so fortunate we have a good vet that checked her hips like she did when we got her.

    Can someone help me with my English Bulldog Mack. He is 6 years old and been having problems with his hips for a good 4 months now. He has been diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia and the Vet wanted to do the FHO surgery. I had never heard of it before and had a hard time believing his muscles could hold the bone in place. He weighs 84 pounds and the Vet suggested to loose about 10 pounds prior to the procedure. The articles I have been reading are pretty much on dogs were are puppies or young. I also feed him Blue and have been for for about 8 months now mainly for his skin, which has helped, but not his dysplasia. I am not at peace about this surgery because of his age and weight and would love to have some feedback to help me go in the right direction. He will be 7 in November. He currently is really having a hard time getting up and we hate seeing him this way.
