Default Im really upset and need some reassurance

So as most of you know I have a siberian husky who is just a little over a year old know and for a while now i have noticed after her long walks she is very tired her back legs are woblly or buckle in I take her for two one/two hour walks every day but this has been worrying me latley since she is such a young dog I went to have her sit helped her and pushed on her butt a little and she fell over. During the day when im at school she is in a fenced in kennel and she is normal very excited to see me but lately she just lays in her dog house and looks at me she has troubles getting up when its time to get out to its really worring me because she is normally extremelly hyper its just not like her and it saddens me. I read there is no cure for hip dysplasia is that true but there is a chance for surgery right how long would you guys wait before getting her x-rayed.

I agree ^^^ there's no cure except surgery and the younger the better .My Chip's former owners had both of his hips done ....he never had a problem afterwards . So sorry !! Keep us posted !!

It's important that you get her to a vet soon. Good luck!

alrighty so im feeling a bit better my moms friend was a vet tech for several years and her dog has hip dysplasia so we had her come over after I had taken her for my two hour walk to put my mind at ease that im not imagining this and she thinks its just from all the excersice and that she is still growing so everything isent fully formed she said she has good stature and that not to really worry about anything untill her plates in her legs have stopped growing because they caint do surgery untill they have anyway. I have her next appointment coming up in a month so as long as nothing gets worse we will just mention it to the vet then. I hope people repect the choice i would never leave her in pain deliberatly and I can trust my moms friend I went job shadowing with her before her dog was diagnosed with it at nine weeks.

I would do more than mention it to your vet, I would insist on some xrays to get a definite picture of what's going on. Young or not, she shouldn't be "falling" over or buckling like you describe.

The ONLY way you will get a definite answer is via xray and I wouldn't put it off.

good luck

as the last poster mentioned, this is not a normal thing and I would not wait long before x-raying her. I wouldn't put this off.

Under these circumstances X-rays would be the wisest choice to know for certain what is going on. Yes, they can be pricey but this is a situation when you want to know exactly what you're dealing with and what your dog is going through is not normal at all especially for her age.
