Thanks Joyce & Jocelyn, I appreciate the info. I think my household will be a good place for this pup to recover: Cody and Tess are pretty laid back, I already have a 10x10 room set up for limited activity during the day (and will get an x-pen if even more limited space is required), we already walk 3x a day, and I have a stroller & carrier to limit the activity. I may be regretting this in a few weeks but right now feel pretty comfortable that I can handle this one.
KC1979 - First WELCOME! And yes, avascular necrosis is the same thing as Legg-Calve-Perthes. Have you taken your pup to an orthopedic specialist yet? It might be a good idea. From the limited reading I've done, waiting too long for surgery can cause possible permanent damage and at the very least slow down recovery. Good Luck!
