    Default Possible Knee Tear!

    Dudley is at his veterinarian's right now getting x-rays of his knee. He's had problems on and off for a couple of weeks...so off we went this morning. They give him a bit of a tranquilizer and are going to x-ray his knee...I feel sick. I hope it's nothing and Mommy is wrong and just a little panicky...but the fact that the vet suggested it -- he who is never panicky and knows his bullies! -- made me think it was the thing to do. He's only gone for a little while today, but geez, the house feels so empty without him!

    Dudley! Hope it is nothing serious. He is a tough-guy, whatever it is, he will handle it! Stay strong, Mom!

    Thanks everyone - you guys are the best. So...good news/bad news on the Dudley front. Good news - his knee is stable and the vet (I love his vet) doesn't think it's torn...most likely a sprain. He said to keep him quiet for 10 days!! YIKES. The sort of bad news is that he has his displaysia. Something I've sort of wondered when I watch him run - I notice it's more a jack rabbit look! Dr. Heller says he is not in any pain, though, but of course it is degenerative. He said to get him on glucosomine/chondroitin and fish oil. He was glad to hear that Dudley is on both. Actually, I have him on coconut oil - I took him off the salmon oil because I thought it was making him a little itchy. The doctor said in order to get the anti-inflammatory benefits you need a 5:1 ratio of plant to fish oil. So...adding back the salmon oil! I'll do anything. He said he really wouldn't recommend surgery at this point. I hope that's the right thing to do. I trust this guy...Dudley isn't in pain and I hate the thought of putting him through surgery if it's not really necessary...Mommy has a HUGE headache and Dudley is asleep right now...so stinking cute. A couple of pictures...the one is really dark.

    Well glad his knee is ok, but bummer on the hip issue. I think the vet is right and don't do the surgery if it's not needed now.
