If you I could please ask a favour and ask for some positive thoughts for Cooper please? He has been so odd the last few days so day off today I took him into the vet for full xrays tip to toe, bloods, fecal, urine and anything else they can look for. Well my vet has sent the xrays to the specialist as it is possible Coop has in infection in one of his hip implants. If that is the case, I *think* from memory it would me ANOTHER total hip replacement.

He also thinks there may be some bone spurs growing around his first hip implant which shouldn't happen. Also mentioned but didn't want to scare me that tumors do form around the implants. All the tests should come back over the next week or so. So please, any spare thoughts for my poor boy who has been through so much in his short life would be gratefully received. I am freaking out big time about this.

Oh Bianca.....that's no good at all. You must be beside yourself. Fingers, toes and everything crossed, along with lots of prayers for the black pony.

Given it's Friday here, weekend is going to go very slowly for you. Is your vet sending the info to the specialist who did the surgery???

How is Coop now? Did they give him anything to get him through the weekend?

Am so sorry you have to go through this......it just doesn't seem right.

Good thoughts and prayers to both of you! Hoping that this is just a temporary setback and Cooper will bounce back quickly.

Good thoughts and prayers beign sent for Coop from CT.

It's no help for the situation, but someone I work with has a friend who had a hip replacement done last year and the same thing happened to him. If I remember, the doctor said it is a common risk and the guy is going to be on antibiotics for the rest of his life as the preferred option to doing another surgery on him.

the Black Pony is getting all possible positive thoughts every day that things are better than they seem. He's been such a good boy through all of this, come-on he (and Bianca) deserves a break.

Oh Bianca, no! hugging May whatever is truly the matter be something easily fixable. You are both hurting now, but you are both amazingly resilient. May this be something simple, easy, and stress-free to remedy for you and your darling Black Pony. crossedfingers

This is not fair - it was supposed to be smooth sailing after these surgeries and it did seem that this was going to be the case. crossedfingers that it is a minor infection. hugging imsorry I know you are worried but until there is a diagnosis speculation is only causing more worry. Has Cooper been given any pain relief?

frown Poor you and Cooper.

I can't imagine putting in another replacement. I think this happened to a dog on .com and they did an FHO.

THANK YOU all so very much! It means so much to me grouphug Yes he is on abx already and previcox daily until we find out what this is. He has not been getting on my bed for a few days, Thursday night I gave him a previcox and within an hour he was back on the bed. So from that I take it that he IS in pain.

Bloods came back fine today.

Thank you all again.

I'm glad to hear the blood work has come back good and that he is able to get back on 'his' bed with the help of the pain pills.

My heart is just breaking for both of you teary I will just keep hoping and praying that this is nothing big and easily fixed.

Bianca, you are a wonderful Mama to your Coopie. I'm happy he is getting up on the bed again! The Previcox is helping him feel better. Good that bloods came back okay, too. Now, we just want whatever is happening to be something relatively easily fixable. crossedfingers Bianca, you are doing a fantastic job of caring for Cooper. May things go much smoother than you think! hugging

Well crap-a-do. Let's hope The Black Pony doesn't need to have his replacement replaced.

Bianca, I am so sorry I just saw this.

It is not fair that you and Coop are going through more health issues. I hope his hip will be OK, and that treatment will be easier than expected.

Soft hugs for the boy. wub
