Thank you all again hugging

You can see in the photo's his right eye (left in pics) is squinty. I just went to give him a treat before and he must have opened his mouth too wide as he squealed frown

Jean, that is really interesting, thank you so much. I will email the surgeon and let him know what has happened and ask him.

That's the thing, I am now so scared that when he does have the surgery he is going to be at great risk of complications.

Apparently one of the main characteristic to diagnose this is the screaming when opening the mouth.

Handsome, handsome Cooper, be still my heart! What Jean is mentioning is worth discussing with your vet(s), methinks. Less risk of infection in a dog with his history, would be something to consider, if either surgery would work for him well enough. Bianca, count on ongoing good thoughts for Cooper!

I agree for sure in telling Cooper's hip surgeon about this. I think because there is an implant used, the risk of infection is greater. I remember when my mom had her hips done, she couldn't even shave her legs the week before because if she had the slightest cut on her legs they would not be able to do the surgery for fear of there being an underlying infection that could flare up post op.

Scary stuff. So glad he is back home and on the mend!

What a handsome dog. Wow! I am so glad this was caught early so it is easier to take care of. I love the black GSDs.

Thank you ladies hugging

Well his swelling is down but the poor pup went to pick up an old bone before and screamed for minutes frown So I guess the abx are working just too slowly for my liking.

Maybe it is a tooth? How good a look did the vet get at his teeth? I don't know how good Cooper is at the vet but Rosa is pretty good for being handled and the vet didn't see her tooth problem when we went in the first time. She looked at the sides of her teeth but the cavity was on the chewing surface. And the tooth that was already dead looked perfectly fine.

What a wonderful disposition Coop has to smile so winningly at Bianca even when his pretty mouth might hurt.

How many times can you say Good Dog?

When I took a special NSAID once, it made my eyes swell badly, but with the pain, I certainly would think tooth too. If, as the vet was thinking, maybe bacteria from the gut, then I would want to think hard about intestinal permeability and treat for leaky gut? You should be seeing some digestive issues in leaky gut syndromes, but kibbles are so formulated to give firm stools, maybe not?

Whatever is going on, I'm really glad that he is home and the swelling is down, poor boy!

Thank you all hugging

He was given a general anesthetic so the vet was able to have a good look at his teeth. But it is possible of course. I emailed him today (haven't heard back of course as it's Sunday) because while Coop seems his normal happy doofy self, he is still in pain at times. He yawned today and squealed.

I've been keeping him inside mostly as every time he goes out he tries to pick up a ball and squeals frown (I generally don't allow balls inside).

So unless there is a huge change overnight, he will be going back tomorrow.

Lisa, I read up a little on leaky gut syndrome and of course it's possible but I don't see any symptoms?

I haven't emailed the specialist yet as I wanted to wait until this is resolved so I can tell him what has happened. I just want Coop to be healthy for once.

There's no way this could be anything like that MMM (Catu's girl had it)?

Thank you Jean, you must have a wonderful memory! I read something about this last night and made a note to ask the vet today.

Thank you Marlene hugging

The good news is he is heaps better party His eye looks normal, no bulging! And he can pick his ball up!!!! He is a bit careful with it but a huge improvement. So I called the vet and the nurse called back after speaking to him, and said give it another 48 hours and see how he goes.

Fingers crossed!
