Im shocked and devastated
we got Laylah's scans done today and its not good.
My 11 month baby has severe ED in right elbow and moderate ED in her left elbow. Right side already has arthritis setting in. Im absolutely devastated and so scared and freaked out. We need to see a specialist obviously but she will definitely need surgery on the right side at least.
What I need to know from owners with dogs that have ED...
1.What impact will this disease have on her quality of life?
2.If you've had surgery, was it a success?
3.What can I do to help her in the mean time ie. what food, exercise should I be doing to help her?
I really just need any first hand advice or experiences, I never thought id be faced with this as we did so much research before buying laylah. her parents had excellent hip and elbow scores and over 30 puppies born to the same parents no history of ED.
I am so scared that I will loose her to early because of this painful disease...please help me!
