Am Back!!

Am Back!!.... and my x-ray showed pretty ok to me n mummy as my hip joint has a neat and fit between the ball and socket nicely... but the only problem is my right hip has a small tiny shallow gap between the ball and socket (acetabulum) ..and doctor said that is the sign of HD earlier stage and definitely am inherited HD but luckily he said my hip is not that serious cause the ball and socket still sitting nicely which is about more than 60% of the femur is situated in the acetabulum .. But mummy has doubt that i might get HD, she think my hip looks normal... anyway, she will try to get the x-ray film today from the doctor and shall post it out for all to view and get more opinion on the x-ray..

Mummy has done lots of research on HD.. and the x-ray actually didn't show much of a HD sign to my hip as to compare to the x-ray examples on internet that showed HD sign.... but of course, we need to start doing precautions steps such as not allowing me to walk on slippery floor... (oh, mummy bought me another new mat cause i naughtily trash and bite all those non slip mat that mum bought earlier... hehehe.. sorry mum)... and will start taking glucosamine which mum has ordered one from me.. The glucosamine that mum order is Flexicose and it is in liquid form which easier for me to take and good absorption too.. oh, by the way.. i hate pills!!...

Doctor said.. we will need to monitor my hip from time to time.. the next check up will be another 6 more months... Oh yes.. i hate being anaesthetic!... my whole body was staggering and wobbly on my legs.. i bang myself here and there.. i got scared... and i pee on my doc shirt.. hahaha.. how bout that!!

Ok.. i will show the x-ray by end of the day....

Thank you guys for all your concern and well wishes... thanks again.....

It's good to hear that your HD is not very serious. Sounds like your Mom is taking very good care of you.

I know it's no fun going to the vet, but the vet is only trying to help you. I always tell myself that when I have to go.

Stay well!~

i know nothing about the doctor analysis but boy, you sure embarrass yourself by peeing on the vet's shirt! hehehehe.

Hi Rossi!

I hope you're feeling batter now. I don't like vets either.. I don't like their smell or my smell when the smell sticks to me.. whole lotta smells!

Your mum sure take vewy good care of you. Try not to so slipping and sliding so your mommy won't get too worried.

We're worried too!
