This is my first post. Hopefully it works. One of my shep mix girls limped when she was little and the vet told me he thought it was the beginning stages of hip dysplasia. I bought a product from Solid Gold called Sun Gold 75% Pure Yucca. Native Americans gave their horses and other animals yucca for sore joints. You sprinkle it on their food. It costs less than $20 for a pound of it.
Also, I got ActiPet Hip and Joint Defense and gave her 2 tablets a day. She doesn't limp anymore and the vet doesn't see any sign of hip dysplasia. I also buy treats from Avo Derm that are for hip dysplasia. I have read some negative things about that medication your vet put your dog on. So I would rather try products that have glucosamine in them. Hope this helps a bit and I wish the best for your dog.

Hip Dyplasia

Good news we went ahead and did hip surgery on 9-5. We took him back on 9-16 to have his staples removed. The vet did his examination and told us he looked ahead of schedule in the recovery process. He told us its a 16 week recovery period. Hopefully that $1200 (plus we had him neutered). surgery will have done the trick. It also seems like they gave him a attitude adjustment - he's actually listening and doing when we give him a command.
