I recently noticed a degree of lameness when he tried to get up,help?
Hello I am an owner of a 5 1/2 month old Labrador male puppy. I live in Hyderabad, India.
I recently noticed a degree of lameness when he tried to get up and constant whining and shifting of position while sleeping. On examination the veterinarian doctor has diagnosed him with Hip Dysplasia. She has prescribed him to be on medication and regulated exercise.
After extensive research online, I have come to the conclusion that surgery is the most effective method of treatment. And since he is young, can be done without much trouble.
Can anyone please, PLEASE let me know if there is surgical treatment available anywhere in India as there is none available in Hyderabad.
Is there anyone I can possibly send photographs of his X ray's to, to diagnose and offer a second opinion as to whether he can manage with medication?
