Hi there,

I hope that Tuck is still doing well. We are facing exactly the same situation with our 4 month old Malinois, Mishka. She had her leg amputated at two months before we adopted her and we now have the bad news that she has terrible hip dysplasia and her remaining joint is completely out of the socket, making movement very painful and awkward. We would have to wait another 5 months for her to grow sufficiently to have a hip replacement and even then the outcome is uncertain. Feeling so desperate for her and just wanted to hear how your journey continued after the replacement of Tuck's hip. 

Thanks so much, Martin

  

Martin, welcome. Please start a new topic in Hopping Around and register as a guest so we can help you and Mishka OK?

I'm so sorry you're facing this with your sweet puppy. Here are posts about Tripawds who had remaining leg surgeries that may inspire you and give you hope. Again, start a new topic so we can provide more input OK? See you there!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
