After a few months of on and off limping and mostly ineffective conservative treatment approach (as recommended by orthopedic vet : included mild sedation and strict rest for a month) , I brought my now 1 year old golden to her primary care vet to get X-rays done.
The vet recommended that I see an orthopedic surgeon but her opinion was that she has some sort of cartilage issue/injury in her right shoulder. I brought her to the orthopedic surgeon right away who did a physical exam & reviewed the X-rays and diagnosed her with OCD in her shoulder.
He recommends arthroscopic surgery on her shoulder - of course I am going to do it because I want her to be the happiest and healthiest she can be but i was wondering if anyone has experienced this with their golden puppy and has either done the surgery or hasn’t done the surgery and the overall outcome of either situation.
I just want to make sure I’m doing the best thing for her and would love to hear other people’s experience with OCD in their goldens.
