“Here’s something I didn’t know,” says Admin.
“At last,” says Spence.
“I’m going to ignore that,” says Admin, although we all know he never really can. “I was aware that hip replacement surgery for big dogs has been going on for some time, but now they’re putting micro-hips into small dogs – 6 to 30 pounds, and even into cats.”
Whoa. What was this? Where are hips again, exactly?
“According to this article in the NYT, they’re even getting injured competitors back into agility contests,” Admin says.
“But the big thing is the dogs are now pain free, right?” says Spence.
“What are you saying?”
“I know I’m not a doctor – “
” – but here’s my opinion. Hip replacements will work better in dogs than in people because each leg bears less of the total.”
Bears? Bears are now in this? These guys!
