    My brother's SBT sinks like a stone if she stops paddling - something to do with lots of muscle and not much fat. My dog has webbed feet, and swims really well. PS: just walking in chest deep water is good. There is less weight on the joint and more resistance from the water on the movement - very good for rehab and strengthening. It's what I did for me when I buggered my knee.

    JTDNTB - "Hyacinth" is only a forum nickname so it doesn't matter much to me what you do with it. I was going to call my dog that, but it's impossible to yell across an oval. Mrs Bucket (Mrs Boo-Kay)- the character that inspired the name probably would not be amused though.

    Took Bailey to the vet this arvo for her annual vaccination and check up.

    Apart from learning that their is a MASSIVE parvo outbreak in my area!.......

    Got the vet to do a thorough check on Baileys legs/hips as I know bully breeds are prone to hip displasia(sp) and because I have been researching weight pull and wanted to get her checked over before I started training.

    He says her hips are fine however her left knee is not in good condition Its turned outwards A LOT more than it should be and she is bow-legged.

    I cant do weight pull with her because she is now not allowed to pull any more than her own body weight and it is likely she will need surgery in the future.


    my poor baby girl
    Oh crap....poor baby. If it helps I will share what I would do with a rescue in this situation. Glyde (vet product) with every meal (personal experience with Noah who was to have a hip replacement at 12 months - got him on Glyde at 5 months, by 12 months he had great hips, no need to operate....TRUE story)! Also chemical free minced chicken carcass - the bone in the carcass actually helps the dogs sickly bones. Aloe vera juice!! both of these mixed with each meal. Not sure if all this will help Bailey, but definately won't hurt! Glyde is expensive and takes 6 - 8 weeks to kick in but I have found it very worthwhile. Otherwise you could try Pet Ark Muscle & joint formula or PAW osteo tablets. The latter two have crushed green tipped muscle which works faster than the cooked green tipped muscle in glyde. I currently have Gomez on Pet Ark but am changing him over to the PAW this week. Thinking of you!

    Massive parvo break out - eek. I keep seeing puppies out walking that haven't had all their vaccinations. The owners often don't know they need to have booster shots, totalling three all up for the first time a puppy gets the C5 vaccination, and they don't know it's not considered effective for two weeks after the last shot.

    Why don't vets tell them these things?
    For the last 6 months or so I have been having our pups vaccinated with the tri-annual vaccination because it is effective after only 72 hours and I feel it is vitally imoortant for a pei pup to be flooded with social outings. More expensive but also eliviates the need for chemicals in their bodies annually because it lasts for 3 yrs, except the KC componant which still needs to be done annually.

    Im sorry to hear.
    Roly is also bow-legged, it hasn't caused problems till recently.

    It shouldn't cause any problems for her till she gets further towards the end of her life.
    Hyacinth suggested swimming which is a perfect idea.

    Swimming was the reccomended exercise for Chloe with her fractured shoulder. It worked really well. Lots of other good advice here too.
