Re: EA has Osteochondritis - any experiences?

Hi,
I have only seen a slight limp once in about two months. I wouldn't opt for surgery. That implies a big risk for the dog and she would have to rest for another 6 weeks.

Re: EA has Osteochondritis - any experiences?

Hi, now, after 4-5 months, EA has recovered almost completely:) Only after serious running a little bit of limp is visible.

Re: EA has Osteochondritis - any experiences?

Hi Suzanne, thanks. A 2nd, 3rd or 4th opinion is always good. EA is doing pretty well and she knows very well that we are going to the beach now. And she is joining us. Swimming can never do any harm and she loves it. We will just be careful of strong movements. The pic of your dog is great!!! :) Er...

Re: sick dog:(

Hi, yes we play with her a little, but now she has a definitive diagnosis: ostocondritis and should rest as much as possible. It's always good to have a diagnosis.

Re: EA has Osteochondritis - any experiences?

Hi Suzanne, yes that was exactly the same impression I got having come home from the vet. Total rest, having checked the web. In fact, we haven't taken her out for walks in a week and she seems better. She gets Rimadyl as well. I like our vet but as all doctors, they can't know EVERYTHING. Thanks fo...

EA has Osteochondritis - any experiences?

EA was X-rayed today and it turns out that her limp is caused by Osteochondritis. Not very severe and according to the vet it should probably heal by itself. But he did say that exercise would do no harm. But have checked it on the internet and a sick dog should stay so much in peace as possible. An...

Re: sick dog:(

Oh thanks guys for your replies, you really inspire me! Here in CA, none of those toys exist. And EA forgets all about her pains once she is out on the street. Otherwise she is pretty sensitive:) But we will try to be creative.

Thanks,
this is a great forum

Re: sick dog:(

Thanks, I do try to play with her but she is mostly into physical games:) Should try the mental ones but didn't really understand your examples?

sick dog:(

Hi, my dog EA has an injured tendon or that is what the vets say. For more than a month we haven' t done long walks which she loves. She is bored and impatient - but what can we do? She starts limping badly after just a short walk. I feel so guilty and having her eyes on me all the time, waiting for...

Re: EA´s owner says hi from El Salvador

Hi again, a few more words about us. We are foreigners here in El Salvador, but know a lot about the region. A pitbull -EA´s mother Canela - came into my life by accident. She was two years old and pregnant. I adopted her. We were both terrified, but everything went very well. We fell in love with e...

EA´s owner says hi from El Salvador

Hi, I am EA´s mom. EA is an energetic, loyal and intelligent 3-year-old female pitbull. Playful, sweet and a wonderful family-dog. But she is terrible on the street. She is definitely dog-aggressive and all dogs in the neighborhood fear her. We have tried to socialize her, but it has been difficult ...
