Hi kraftykid

Her weight is fine. She hasn't been to an orthropedic doctor because the only one around here is not board certified and I won't take her to him. I asked about using ice or heat but the vet said it would not really help her condition.

I have checked into dog wheels for her, the vet said not take that route yet because it will deteriorate what use of her legs she has. The place I checked does have refurbished ones and even some donated ones but none were available when I called a few weeks back.

I have faced the fact that I will have to make her life as comfortable as possible. She will have bad days and good days just like me. I give her a little more attention, love her as much as I can and give her a good life, no matter how long it may be.

My cousin is a vet in Florida and he told me he had to put a pup down that was 6 months old with really bad hip displasia. I am thankful for what time we have together. I hope the same for you and your doxie. Thanks for responding.
