"Have you seen a surgeon for their opinion? I would also recommend you have him assessed by a rehab professional, they will give you a home exercise (strengthening) programme and be able to advise you on suitability and amount of other types of…"

"Susan, your breeder is behaving exactly like a crummy breeder does.  It sounds like she borrowed someone else's contract wording - if your dogs haven't been tested how can you possibly know if their hips are good.  Don't…"

Susan commented on Leslie Gosdin's group Doodles with Hip Dysplasia
"Our 10 month old F1B medium Goldendoodle Finnigan was diagnosed with hip dysplasia last month. We could feel and hear clicking in his back hips when he was 5-6 months of age. We spoke to our breeder and she thought it might just be a growth…"

"Susan, I have sent you a friend request, please feel free to read all my posts on the subject.  I agree with Karen, we decided to fix the issues with Beemers hips and not just medicate.  I know the expense is great but we are now 7 years…"
