Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Magie is limping on the right leg. It sounds like she has a history of hip dysplasia if they were considering performing a triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO?). Let me know if that sounds correct. Can you please describe the limp to me in a little more detail, does she keep her foot off the ground or is she dragging it when she walks?
