Good news! I took my BC for surgery to the vet in SS2 (next to Lobsterman) and although post surgery recovery was very painful, he made a full and complete recovery after 4 months. He is as active as ever and looks and feels wonderful. He is back to jumping (though I keep telling him not to) Highly recommend the vet there for surgeries. Cost was VERY reasonable. They seem to do their work out of a genuine love for dogs.
My BC had hip dysplasia. His hip bone socket was so shallow that the head of the femur could not rest there. It kept slipping out. The surgeon had to carve out some space in the hip bone to create a space for the head of the femur to rest.
