Frankie will be 5 years old in November. When he was 9 months old he had LP surgery on right leg, which was a "stage 4."
Now he is constantly scratching the air with his rear left leg. He doesn't skip like he did with the right leg before surgery but he looks like he is trying to scratch but can't reach. We had a visit with our vet and she took x-rays. She seems to think he is at stage 3, maybe 4. She has recommended a specialist in Tampa. He has his appointment Friday. By looking at x-rays I am sure he will require the surgery, wish my man lots of luck! :(

Poor baby! I am so sorry. How far from Tampa are you? My mom has to go up to Tampa for a medical procedure- she is not happy about a 1.5 hour commute each way.
