My 7 year old Chessie is having major hip failure. It showed in x-rays when she was two years old (she was diagnosed with Addison's disease at the same time). Since we have had fair warning, she has been doing well by eating dog food with glucosamine, etc....

We are looking into hip replacement. I know a Golden in my area that had very successful hip replacement surgery and I'm hoping to hear some more success stories...

Anyone have any suggestions?
