    Mrs Loon had to take him to the vets today as it is getting worse..

    Ends up Buddy has Legg–Calvé–Perthes disease :confused:

    We are going to be talking to the Vet again today to make a time for his surgery..

    --------------------------------------
    Osteonecrosis of the femoral head of young, small breed dogs (LCP disease) was first described in veterinary literature by Tutt in 1935:[15] he described the disease, as did Waldenstromin (1909) in humans,[16] Toy and small breeds, particularly Toy Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers, Pugs, Jack Russell Terriers, and Dachshunds can be affected. LCP disease is an osteonecrosis of the femoral head in small breed dogs, usually those weighing less than 12 kg. There seems to be no *** predilection in the dog as contrasted to humans, in whom an 80% male incidence of the disease is evident. As in children, however, the condition is usually unilateral, with only about 10% to 15% incidence of bilateral disease. The age of onset varies between 4 months and 12 months, with a peak incidence at about 7 months. [17] The pathology of avascular necrosis followed by revascularization and bony remodeling of the femoral head in the dog certainly suggests a vascular etiology even though the cause of the condition is not completely understood. [18] Hip pain is usually seen by the age of 6 to 8 months.[19] The disease is bilateral in 12 to 16 percent of cases.[20] X-rays are necessary to make the diagnosis and show increased opacity and focal lysis in the head of the femur, and later in the disease, collapse and fracture of the neck of the femur. The recommended treatment is surgical removal of the head of the femur, but conservative treatment (rest, exercise restriction, and pain medication) may be effective in a limited number of cases (less than 25 percent, according to some studies).[20]

    Loon sorry to hear about little Buddy. If you end up going the conservative route, be sure to talk to your vet about treatment incorporating Meta Cam or Rimadyl. We have had really good results with past dogs using both.

    Love the pics Loon...keep up the good work.

    Sorry to hear the little guy needs surgery. Maybe you could see if his relatives can help out with the cost.
    This guy has got to be in the family...ha

    Have a good one.

    Thanks gang.. He is getting around pretty well with 3 legs but we have to try and keep him quiet for 6 weeks ;lol

    He's not allowed to be outside without a leash so me and Emma have been hanging around the house by ourselves.

    Gotta bad feeling its gonna take awhile for him to get all his hair back? :p ::-)
