|I'm sorry to hear about your dog's condition. Only a vet or the surgeon consult will be able to really help you with your questions. All I know is Osteo == Bone. The rest of it I'd have to Google.
back from a trip to the search engine... It sounds bad but at least it's something your dog can live with. Not sure I fully understood what I read, in regards with what this means to your dog's daily activities.
It sounds like it's a condition that for whatever reason cuts blood flow off to "parts of?" a bone or joint? Followed by bone necrosis and bone regrowth. What was not said but I read into: That means there could ultimately be bone deformities such as spurs or other odd and painful growths.
Again, I'd seek advice from your vet or the consult as they have the answers you seek. If they don't, they can point you to the answers or find them for you. It sounds like you may just need to be sensitive to the dog's condition. Don't over exercise him. Pain meds if needed. etc.
Keep us posted and I hope for the best.
