Good news first - Badger had his electrolytes tested and they are in normal range!!! We already have his meds at a good dose after only one switch. That is soooo rare. He's doing great. Qtip however, at 15 months old, has hip dysplasia. I wanted to share the info as many here have LGDs. Probably due to a growth spurt, the balls in her hips are not completely in the socket. Some vets do surgery - thank goodness mine doesn't. I couldn't go through that right now. But they grow out of it alot of times. She is now taking one glucosamine tablet and 3 maalox coated aspirins (forgot name brand) a day. She got her first dose of aspirin today so hopefully we'll see a change in a week or so. The major sign was her back legs are turned out some and she 'bunny hops' with the back legs when she runs. That means they are hurting her. X-rays confirmed it. Usually takes 6 months to grow out of with the aspirin. She needs pain relief so she'll resume normal activity and build up/keep up the muscles in her legs. It's like arthritis in people - keep moving to keep moving.
