Thanks! Scan has shown he needs the op.

It is a 15 min job, and once he's healed there should be no further issues

Should be able to pick him up tomorrow! Poor baby. He's such a character, think he's going to be feeling really sorry for himself

Glad to hear they've pinpointed the issue and can fix it so quickly.

Am I remembering rightly that he just came up randomly lame? What exactly are they fixing? Just curious

It's called OCD. Basically the cartilage has developed little flaps (mice!) and it is painful. They don't really know what causes it, but it is linked to rapid growth of the bone in young (generally male), large dogs, blood supply, trauma and diet. But the reality is, they don't know why it happens in some dogs and not others.

I think I've now read every article written on it, I could probably write my own!

They say slowing down growth can help prevent it (not sure how you'd do that!), not over exercising, feeding a good diet etc.

I'd never heard of it before, but must be more common that people realise.

I wish a speedy recovery for poor Fred!

I believe the only way you'd really try to slow down growth is feeding all life stages/adult food instead of puppy food.

Wow, only fifteen minutes?? That's an awesome surgery time! I hope he rebounds quickly, but not too quickly, because trying to keep an active dog quiet is pretty much the worst thing in the world.

Healing vibes to Fred! I'm glad you ended up having the scan. Not really glad it found something, but at least it's an easy fix

Sending healing vibes!

I've heard of OCD in horses, definitely painful and from what I had heard, sometimes difficult to treat and diagnose. So, I'm glad you had him checked out and he's getting it fixed, hopefully it won't give him any issues in the future.
