Our 15 month old doodle was diagnosed with hip dysplasia a couple of weeks ago. The vet did an x-ray to show it. It seems to have gone from 0-60 as he was just limping for a while but now it seems once he has laid down, he gets up and will not put weight on his leg for a few minutes and then tries to walk or he will take a couple of steps and lay back down. I have him on 1500 mg of glucosomine and 1 ecotrin a day. Does anyone else have any suggestions? I am taking him back to the vet today for further evaluation. I really do not want to put him on steriods and I think he is a little young to go right to the hip replacement as it is my understanding that the hips don't set until they are 2.
