    Hi Tiffany, I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how you're feeling regarding the Hip Dysplasia.
    The reasoning behind keeping them active is to build up muscle around the joints. It also helps to keep them from becoming stiff. HD is at it's worst when it's cold and they're first waking up. Kinda like us as we age .
    That's what I've been told at least. Just be careful not to overdo it.

    HD is also very common in bullies. Most have it to some degree, but because of their anatomy, they don't normally show symptoms unless it's very severe.
    Hopefully with the right meds and exercise, Rumble's symptoms won't be bad.

    Keep us updated.

Today they did X-rays and they think he has a partial tear in his ccl on his left hind leg and they found hip dysplasia on his right hind leg. I am so worried and concerned about the tear and furious about the hip dysplasia. He is on strict rest and doggie ibuprofen for a week and then we go back. He was already on glucasomen vitamins and he will stay on those. Hopefully he gets back to feel better but I know a tear is not a good diagnosis and neither is hip dysplasia.

    Sorry, I meant only NON active the next 2 months, after that, yes...activity
    is good just no jumping, zooming around corners, etc.

    There is mixed opinion on whether glucosimine/chondrotin is effective. I'd
    put Rumble on a different joint med, one that builds cartiledge. Can't think
    of names tonight but will post some, Nu Pet here has a great one.

    Great that he's lean, helps a lot. Did your Vet not think he needed Tramadol
    (pain reliever) the 1st week?

    How old is he?


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    He is 18 months old and normally a very active hyper bully. Before all of this we would go on walks almost daily of a mile and he would still have tons of energy to run around when we got home. He has never showed any signs of pain. The vet did not say anything about tramadal...maybe because he wasn't showing pain?

    Rumble has everything going for him, including great bully pawrents

    Again, look into cartiledge building joint meds, hopefully EBNers will
    share what's helped their bullies and keep him quiet the next month.

    If he wasn't showing pain...altho many bullies won't. GOD bless y'all!

    So sorry Rumble is going through this My two females were both diagnosed with HD, they have had the FHO operation and they're both doing great. There are so many different options when it comes to treating HD, I'm sure Rumble will be doing great
