Story

Sooty is a 3 year old labrador collie cross who has had problems with his hind legs since birth but the vets have been unable to diagnose the problem, finally after changing vets he got referred to a specialist vet who diagnosed hip dysplasia, but because it hadn't been picked up until earlier this year the thigh muscle on the right side is non existent causing the hip joint to rub and he has now got severe osteoarthritis. The vet has said he needs a hip replacement but because of the repeated wrong diagnoses the insurance is now not going to cover the full cost even though he is insured for £7,500. He has been having hydrotherapy to try and build up the muscle to try and delay the surgery but it isn't working and he is obviously in pain so is going back to see a specialist vet to discuss surgery but it cannot be carried out unless I can raise the money. I am myself disabled and I have had knee replacements so know the pain he is going through. He is otherwise healthy but if I cannot raise the money there is only 1 other option and I do not want to think about that

    Going back to Fitzpatrick's on 26th November to see the vet who will be performing the hip replacement. Have to stop his medication and light therapy now to get it out of his system so they can see how he is without it. They have now got the latest x-ray showing the extent of the hip dysplasia

    Sooty went to FitzPatrick Referrals on Friday. Unfortunately, latest x-rays taken in May weren’t sent. Vet asked why I thought right hip was worse. I said x-ray showed severe muscle wastage on right side. She then showed me x-ray that had been taken in March at local vets showing even muscle. I said it wasn't the latest, but she said that vet said it was. When Sooty examined his left hip was more painful than right hip, he was really upset when the left was checked, so her 1st choice to do. Said to find animal physio as well as hydrotherapy.

    Sooty is going to Fitzpatrick Referrals (Supervet from TV) next Friday 31st August to discuss the surgery. This video shows how he is walking from the rear. His back legs overlaps ?due to dislocating and he is stumbling as he walks or stands still as there is hardly any muscle on the right side

I used to be a community midwife until I had to take medical retirement eventually needing both knees replaced so I know what pain Sooty is going through
