Howie – 2 Years Recovered

Hey everyone!

I thought I would post how Howie is doing. In April it will be 2 years since Howie had surgery after being diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease. I can say that he has done really well since we keep him active with walks every day to build up scar tissue where the joint once was. We take him to the dog park or beach about once a week and he loves to sprint as fast as he can. His affected right hind leg doesn’t quite hit the ground at the same time as the others but it doesn’t seem to affect his ability to run.

Hope this gives you hope for your dog on the road to recovery.
