Thunder was diagnosed with hip displasia at just 4 mos and has undergone surgery on both hips. He is however our success story! He's doing great and we now carry pet insurance! (his surgeries (T*ripple P*elvic O*steoctomy) was approx. 6K!)
We have done a lot of research/reading on this so if we can help anyone out we would be glad to answer any questions.
Look forward to chatting with you!
