    I guess I would need a pic to see what you are talking about. Hope all goes well at the vet, praying for good news!

    Super bad news for Truman. Basically worst case scenario - he needs one surgery for one hip, another surgery for another hip to give him a chance at a functional life.

    His bad hip is out of socket so JSP surgery won't help that one so he needs an FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) but the good hip is basically a time bomb, so he could benefit from the JPS on that one.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet since he is so young and the prognosis is so "iffy" as to whether or not he will ever lead a normal life even with these procedures. Ugh.

    Thanks, I'm super upset. I don't know what the right thing to do is anymore and I hate seeing him go through this.

    I know this has got to be a very hard decision. I cannot even imagine. I know whatever you decide to do, it will be in the best interest of Truman. You must be so torn and hurting right now. I cannot even begin to tell you how sorry I am you have to go through such decisions.

    A quick bump to the first post I made on the board when Truman's hip popped out of socket at 10 weeks old - re-reading these on his birthday might be a new tradition for me!

    Any advice or insight is appreciated.
    Ok too weird! I just posted an exact post as urs in bulldog heath... My Memphis is doing the exact same thing... He flat out refuses to put weight on his back left leg n IF he walks he hops like it is really hurt. We r at the vet now waiting... I checked his foot n he doesnt have anything stuck n i do notice his hips look lopsided...
