My doberman "Harley" is 6 months old. Yesterday while letting him inside i noticed that he was favoring his back left leg. Later that night i noticed some swelling in the "ankle" area of his paw and applied a cold pack to try and reduce the swelling. When i got up this morning i noticed that the swelling had gotten significantly worse and took him the the vet to get xray's taken. The xrays revealed that he had a displacement where the bone and the growth plate meet. The vet stated that the only treatment was to have orthopedic surgery that could cost several thousand dollars. I asked her if there was anything else at all we could do to help treat this problem, and she wouldnt even entertain the idea of another source of treatment. Obviously several thousand dollars is a huge investment to make. Im just curious if there is any other means of non surgical treatment that would yield positive results for my little harley... ***Suggestions highly needed***
