My best friend in the whole world has hip dysplasia. I'm afraid of surgery due to two friends who went ahead and opted for that with their dogs and it didn't actually help. In fact it was worse. Which was very devastating for them.
Does anyone have any good outcomes and if so what was the method? I've heard about liquid glucosamine, I'm going to ask our vet about it. The options from him are NSAIDS, Pain relievers or surgery. Surgery could help or hurt it's 50/50. The other two can't really be used long term. I'm selfish I want my best friend for as long as I can have her and I refuse to cause her more harm. I'm already looking for another vet for a second opinion. Otherwise I'm all ears.
