    I told one of my friends in the natural rearing group about Lex's situation, and this is what she said:

    You know, there is a wonderful animal rehab place that has all kinds of soft contraptions that can put used on dogs with torn cartilages, HD, broken legs etc etc. They are really nice people to talk to and they could likely really help this dog get more mobile while protecting his joints and allowing the ACLs to heal.

    animalrehab.on.ca


    Give them a try. Homeopathy would probably be a real help as well in conjunction.
    I didn't really mention that you're in texas, so she assumed that you're in my province and gave me the canadian website. I'll ask if there's a Texan or American equivalent to their facility.

    Have they said anything about stem cell therapy? Cutty's Dr mentioned they do it to help strengthen the joints and stuff. Doesn't cute the year but helps make it easier on the pup. Wonder if this would help lex? Poor baby.

    There is a dr here that does stem cell stuff on dogs but haven't really looked into it. I might have to

    I really would. Not sure all the details but the Dr made it sound like a great option for bullies he normally doesn't think can handle the acl surgeries. I was thinking at Cutty's age it might be best for him but Dr says no, surgery will work best.

    Here's what she said:
    Thank you for your inquiry. I am set up if the need arises to conduct a "long distance" order. I would need her vets contact info for me to forward on the necessary paperwork for them to measure the dog for our brace.
    For this size of dog, she would be looking at a cost between $400 - $420 + $30s&h, all dependant on amount of material used. Once I have the info it will take apprx a week to ten days to manufacture and 2-3d for ship time.
    Please do let me know if you have any other questions on our product, keep in touch.

    And after I asked her if she has experience with dogs who have both hip dysplasia and bad knees:

    I think it would be beneficial if your friend can call me so that I may chat a bit about her dogs condition/situation and from there determine what is the best route to take with her dog.
    The brace helps to support both the dogs legs, thus making them more comfortable and in time reducing stresses on other joints due to compensating. She can also try using a sling (towel etc) to help support the back in a wee bit to help take some of the weight load off the back legs.
    Hope this helps some and please I would welcome a phone cal to further chat.


    Since Canada's prices are usually more expensive that what you pay in the U.S., it may be cheaper if you order the apparatus somewhere closer to home. But giving Molly a call may be a good idea, seeing she has extensive experience on joint issues.

    How Lex doing today? Hope he's getting better.

    Do u think that steam cell repair would work on torn ligaments? That's my ?... I talked w Jeff a little at lunch about it and well he's a guy and didn't say to much. But like I told him it might be cheaper and help him. All we can do is try right?

    If I can remember what Dr said.... Something along the lines of it will help strengthen the muscles and joints around the year to make it more comfortable and better working. Def not a fix but sounds like something worth trying. No idea on cost but I would totally do it if my babies had such pain and nothing else could be done.

    Sounds about like the same price here. I asked The dr about a brace abd he said the only problem w bullies is they don't really have anywhere to attach the top part of brace

    He mostly lays on his blankie in the floor or is a couch potato most of the time lol. He does get up and run and play w Bo and Libby but have to monitor how the play goes.

    Man I'm so ready to be done w girls softball and wedding planning so I can get back to being on here regularly I have missed so much ....

    I called the vet here that does the stem cell surgery and hopefully will be able to make the 10:15 app on sat. Jeff's oldest is in tourneys all weekend so it'll depend on her games if not I will find another time that's good for me to do the app since I can't take off work .. They will see us and talk and see if he is a candidate for the surgery and we will go from there. Fingers crossed!!!
