GREAT NEWS. Brodie had an appointment yesterday with his surgeon and he does NOT need the other hip replaced. He is doing so well and it doesn’t look as bad as originally thought. He is ready to go to his forever home.

After speaking with Brodie’s foster mom and conferring with our vet, we have decided that for Brodie to have a really good future with no pain and more agility, we are going to get his other hip replaced. We will schedule that as soon as possible and he will have another couple of months of rehabilitation and the that boy will be as good as new. He deserves to have a pain free life and be able to run because he loves it so much.

Brodie likes slow walks in the yard and just chillin 😎 He would do best in a home with calm dogs. He tries to keep up with the young ones, but has a bad hip that can cause some issues when he overdoes it. He is the sweetest of the sweets. Everyone is his friend, and his foster home reports he is laid back, easy going, and a love bug all the time. There is just nothing negative to say about this sweet ole guy who deserves a great home of his own. Maybe yours is that home.

Brodie had his hip surgery and it went great. He stayed at our clinic for a while and then returned to his foster home. He has been recuperating and gaining strength. He has done so well and his foster family reports that he is an absolute lover. He has gained much strength and while is other hip isn’t great, at his age we don’t want to put him through a second surgery and he seems to be doing fine.

Brodie was surrendered by his family because their toddler was falling on him and causing issues. Once we got him into our program we discovered that he had terrible hips – one extremely bad. He wasn’t on any pain meds and so we knew that he was in pain. Our vets recommended a consult with a surgeon which we had done. The surgeon confirmed the diagnosis and recommended a hip replacement. Brodie was very sweet during all of this transition and quickly became a favorite of all of the clinic staff. He was sent to foster until we could get the hip surgery scheduled.
