    Default Poor Holly...

    We discovered a while ago that Holly had a luxating patella on her left hind, the vet decided it didn't need surgery and I was advised to keep an eye on it.

    Last week I brought Bailey and Holly to the beach 4 days in a row. On the fourth day Holly was running and she yelped fell to the ground and had to be carried back to the car. I brought her back to the vet the next day and it turned out that it was actually her right hip that was causing the pain.

    So today she was x-rayed and its not good news She has severe hip dysplasia, I saw the x-rays and i was shocked, her whole socket is worn away.

    Her x-rays are being sent to a specialist in Cork to see if he thinks that she is a candidate for hip replacement. In the meantime she is not allowed to join us for walks and is on glucosimine injections once a week for four weeks.

    She's been so brave

    What a shock for you. Poor Holly!

    Be brave Holly and hope you're feeling better soon. xx

    My Bob is in for xrays tomorrow because of limping... So scary when there's something wrong.

    Poor Holly - give her a big (gentle) hug from me!
    She is very brave considering the severity of her case.. Fingers crossed the specialist in Cork will be able to do something for her
