I still cannot believe how this happened. But I just got home; let the dogs out of the truck to go to the back-yard. As we are walking to the back Ace is running around peeing on everything. His normal mood of speed is about 100 m.p.h. So he is quick. I see he come running around a bush and he takes a small leap but when he comes down he lets out this big scream. He did not roll or crash, just started screaming. He would not put any weight on it; I did not see anything broken.
I put him in a crate for about 5 minutes and put the rest of the dogs in the yard. Headed to the vets office, about 2 miles away. He tells me it is dislocated and needs a Devit pin to help it cure. My vet is the local DU rep so he knows about retrievers and their daily lives so I trust him.
My question is this, as anybody had this happen to them? What kind of recovery time did you really see? They are telling me 6 weeks.
Any kind of info would be great.
