Barron had his right hip replaced on Tuesday and came home today.

So far so good. right now he is resting comfortably I will up date more tomorrow when I can think more clearly.

Thanks for all the positive thoughts,
Bonnie and Barron.

Hip replacement isn’t always necessary! NEW
by: Anonymous Hip replacement isn’t always necessary! There are other options worth checking out before going with an invasive surgery. I bought a hip brace from Ortocanis online to help my dog’s discomfort related to the dysplasia, and it works!! Each situation and dog is going to be different but it’s important I think to check out and try different alternatives before committing to an operation.

Potty Problem NEW
by: Christopher Bayhi Sometimes you can’t do excatly what needs to be done, like the towel helping support Barron’s back end. Did the vet clear him to walk at all?

Check with the vet and explain to him the difficulty you are having. See if VERY limited walking would be ok. By limited I mean just enough to get out and do his business then go back inside. BTW…the ramp was an excellent idea!!!

You might also consider a potty pad in the bathroom for Barron. You can get him to use it by soaking up some urine from outside when he urinates and then putting the pad down in the bathroom. The next time he needs to go, bring him to the pad. Just make sure he has good aim LOL.

Good luck to you. We are keeping you and Barron in our prayers!
