Does anyone have any experience with hypertrophic osteodystrophy? Our 1 year old pup, Tela, has been having some limping and leg issues, along with swollen joints. Diagnosed with luxating patella in both back legs. Her front leg Xrays show signs of Hypertrophic osteodystrophy, and the vet has prescribed tramadol and prednezone (spelling? steroids). The disorder was explained to me as an inflammation in her growth plates. Hopefully she'll grow out of it. We're supposed to keep her calm as possible. Easier said than done, but we're trying. She's taking a nice long nap right now.
