So Cosmo started to get lame around April of this year (10 months old), though we could see him start to get to that point around February. The vet first diagnosed it as "growing pains", which we were certain it wasn't, but we decided to go with it. Two months later we were at an Orthopedic Surgeon who diagnosed it as LCP. The options were either a total hip replacement, which I could not afford at all, or two FHOs. Spaced around 10-12 weeks apart. We ended up going ahead the next week with his first FHO, and he has recovered beautifully from that one. He is extremely active with just that one being healed despite his other leg still needing help, which you can see when he walks. I have to keep him relatively calm until his second one (end of september was the soonest we could do it-financially), but as that time is approaching, is there anything I should know when it comes to taking care of a dog that has had two FHOs? We didn't do anything special when it came to the first one (surgeon didn't tell us too, other then that swimming was okay to do). We get him in the pool as often as we can, but it's been a cold summer in Michigan. He's not any supplements, just Evo Red Meat Formula and Stella & Chewy's Duck Duck Goose food wise. I'm pretty excited for this next FHO, just because seeing Cosmo starting to act like himself again just after one, is incredible... Him attempting to have zoomies (before I can catch him), makes me so happy, but I just want to know what to expect really. He has gained an unbelievable amount of muscle on the operated upon leg, and we are currently in the process of losing some extra weight he has gained since he started hurting (extra spoiling). He's down to 30 pounds, but I'd like to be able to feel his ribs a bit easier and get him as slim as we can.
