UGH! DH just returned from taking our almost 3-year-old lab to the vet. The vet did X-Rays, stating that Zoe was reacting to possible back pain. Turns out that there was no back injury evidenced on the XRay, but she has hip dysplasia. The vet, talking 100 miles per minute, gave DH the options, and DH left feeling overwhelmed and sad. Our vet said we should get a second opinion and possibly consult a specialist. He talked about drug therapy (Rimadyl, . Right now she's running a mild fever and has been put on 100mg Rimadyl twice a day, Osteo BiFlex (3 tablets twice a day) and 100mg Tramadol twice a day. After typing that it makes me feel awful. Zoe was running around the yard yesterday afternoon without a care in the world. She seemed anxious last night and was shaky this morning, which is why DH took her into the vet. We had no indications that she was in pain. Any pet owners out there have experience with this? Recommendations? We did know that dysplasia is a common occurrence, especially in large breeds, but we're not quite sure what course to take here.
