Milo has LCP.

Hi, everyone, I'm new to the Forum. My loveable havanese, Milo (pronounced me-low), has LCP (Leggs-Calve-Perthes) of the right hip and needs to have the femoral head (ball of the hip) removed. He has his surgery on the 19th. He is eight months old, and I'm really nervous. Has anybody had any experiece with this?

Oh my, I am so sorry about Milo. I don't have any information for you but I'm sure someone on this forum can help in some way. Keep us posted and I pray everything will turn out okay, and that your breeder will help also.

I would like to post Milo's picture, but we're having difficulty doing it. Does anybody have any hints?

Oh Milo's mom - I am so, so sorry to hear this. I don't have experience, but if you need help I can make an excellent orthopedic surgeon recommendation down in the SF bay area (south bay). You could pay for a phone consultation and your vet can send the x-rays and any other test results. This vet is the absolute tops and I trust him implicitly. Please PM me and I'll have a contact for you by Monday (I'm getting ready to run out he door).

Posting a photo is easy. Just click "go advanced" and in that screen you'll see "manage extensions" click and then you can upload up to five photos from your computer. Just pick the photo from your hard drive and click upload. If any are too big, you'll get a database error message. Just resize at www.shrinkphotos.com. Another fun way to post photos is to get yourself a free account at flickr (great tool for getting rid of red eyes in your pup's photos) or my favorite is photobucket. It's fun to edit in these programs/web sites too. Anyway, when your photos are in your album on either flicker or photobucket, there is a "code" for a direct link. Click your left mouse button and it automatically copies it for you. Then click on the landscape picture inside the message box (it's at the top in yellow). Click preview post and you'll see what the photo looks like and if you like it's size. Just be careful not to delete your photos from your flickr or photobucket account or we'll just see an "image removed error" message. I'd suggest keeping all your forum photos in a separate album so you don't delete by mistake.

Can't wait to see your photos. Also, you can do a search on "posting photos" and people have lots and lots of advice that has already been given.

If it's not working you probably need to resize it. Look on the home page and I think you will see a place where it tells you where to do and do that if you don't have a program you use on your PC.

After you have resized it and saved it on your PC, click on the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of your post. Then click "Manage attachments" -- then the browse button to find the pic you saved, then upload.
Hopefully this will work for you.

I am so sorry to hear about Milo's hip. It is always so sad when one of our babies needs surgery or is sick. You will find a lot of support on this forum. My prayers are with you and Milo.

So sorry to hear about Milo. Hopefully once the surgery is done, he'll be back to normal.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...
