Thank you for all of your help. Magua did gain over 40 lbs in a 7 month period. He was so underweight. He eats less than what is reccommended for dogs his weight. Hopefully that did not contribute to the problems with his elbows. I am going to try to contact a breeder and/or local Basset club if there is one somewhere in the Northeast. I will try to get pictures of Magua's xrays and post a picture of Magua. I can't believe we ever lived without a Basset Hound in our lives. Thank you again, you have been great. I let you know what we find out the first of the year.

always surgery must be the last option to save the life as it is the most painful thing for animals...

the left leg, while slightly deformed does not cause her problems so the orthopedic surgeon decided to let it alone.

surgery has been great for her pain and mobility. we are lucky to be very near a university with an outstanding vet med college and orthopedic specialists.
Otto had the same with both front legs deformed but only the right was operated on, wishing Sophie all the best.
