So now that I’m 18 months old my pawrents got some more xray’s done on my funny legs and it’s good news! I don’t need surgery right now and the vet was really happy with how I’ve grown! Xia’s front leg deformity is due to premature closing of her growth plates which caused her legs to turn out and some elbow issues – along with other things. 12 months ago we had very knowledgeable vets tell us our options where very limited and they actually supported putting her to sleep! Thankfully there was another option that came about thanks to a beautiful insta friend who we’ll be forever grateful to. We put Xia on a raw diet and managed her pain on natural pain relief. Today Xia only gets Antinol and turmeric to manage her condition, along with her raw diet. The vet we saw recently was amazed at how well she is doing and so impressed that Xia shows no signs of pain! Xia’s legs will always turn out and we may need to operate one day on her right elbow but nothing right now. We are just grateful for every day we get with our beautiful girl.
