I didn't plan on getting them so soon, but Dakota got a foxtail in his nose today. I decided to go ahead and get the hip and elbow x-rays too to save us another $90 sedation fee.

The vet said they looked great, well she said "perfect". ;) Puts rest to my worrisome thoughts.

I was planning on sending them to the OFA when I get paid next month.

And he never did anything to make me concerned, I'm just paranoid. :p

Thank you, and thanks David. ;)

I forgot to add, I got them done since we plan on being more active in sports and doing weight pulling this year.

They did a Rhinoscopy with an Otoscope (Hope I said that right) and removed it. It was a small little bugger too, the one he got last year was huge. Nor Cal sucks for foxtails.

The vet said it's one of the most common issues up here, but a lot of people don't take the dogs in until it gets bad. Both times I brought him up immediately afterward, not only is it easier on the dog but also saves you money.

Now we can add more weight in weight pulling, I wanted to wait until the x-rays to go above what we're at now.

You are doing it the right way, I can't compliment you enough. I did the same but my dog failed his hip exam so we gave up on competing :( not worth pulling a dog until you know what's under the hood. Good luck with the competition !!

Thank you!:hug:

And I agree David, my (well technically my grandmother's) Toy Poodle and Miniature Dachshund have bad structure so I have to really watch what I do with them.
