Past, Present & Future

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you probabely already know that Oak got hip xrays done at the end of April of last year. They weren't great. The socket didn't go completely around the ball, or fit tightly enough. So after discussing things with my vet, I decided on a few things I wanted to do to help improve his hip joints.
First, I put him on Sasha's Blend, salmon oil and vitamin C. Second, he started going to the chiropractor and third, swimming.

Oak will be 2 years old on July 4, 2010. He has an appointment for July 5 to get his hips xrayed for the final time. He looks good, he moves well, his chiropractor is very please with his progress, so we'll see what the actual xrays tell us.

Definitely keep up with everything we've been doing and depending on the xray maybe make some changes and improvements. In the end, all that is important is a healthy, happy, painfree Oak.

He looks better in your garden than the flowers. You should've planted him instead! :)

Woof! Woof! My peeps is aware of hip problems with Golden. Done lots of things to prevent it. Maintaining a proper weight is the key so diet is important. My agility did helped. Swimming definitely but now I developed an allergy to the lake water. Sending your my Golden Healing Thoughts. The salmon oil is great. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Hey Oak, so glad to hear that things are doing well with your hips. Those chiropractors and especially the swimming are way the best way to go.

And who could complain getting all those extra tasty vitamins and minerals.
