Age and breed of dog. Did you elect to do surgery? And if so, whT type of surgery and what was the outcome? Is the dog serviceable.

Where on the dog? Elbow, knee, shoulder? I had a BLF that had one OCD elbow and dysplastic on the other.At a year old had surgery on both.Ortho vet cleaned up the OCD and used surgical bone extending on the other.Lived to 13 and hunted until 10.Arthritis earlier than normal but liveable.

Official but not official. Going for 2nd opinion to Top 10 in US. Will be Humerus/Scapula joint. I thought it was one side. Veterinary journals say 50% bilateral. Today he was favoring the other side as well.

The location will be able to correct Arthroscopically, which is supposed to be cutting edge in the animal medical field. Will hopefully be faster recovery and overall better.
