He has now just seen a third vet to have x-rays done, on post examination she agreed with knee problem which would probably need surgery, we left him for the day for further examination and the x-rays on hips and both back legs,
As you can imagine we have been worried to death for over 2 weeks now as to the outcome.
On returning to pick him up and find out treatment options etc, we were amazed and totally relieved to hear that the X-rays showed nothing untoward, no signs of arthritis and his knee joint was in staying in place. Diagnosis he just carries his right back leg strangly and has an odd walk, he has now been taken off pain meds, and he has to go back to see the ortho specialist again(the shock news vet) to see how he is getting on.
Thankfully we go to the Blue Cross, or this would have cost us a fortune and are they brilliant,
After all this he does need to loose some wieght, to help his joints, any recommendation for the best light dry food, he is eating burns high oats at mo, recommended by our pet shop as on ordinary before.

Wow you must be so relieved the results came back better than you expected. If you can get Alvins weight down it would be much better for his joints.

Thank you Mummy bear, i will check it out, I thought the burns was a good light food but the vet seems to think it is high calorie due to the high oats content??
as you know lhasa's are fussy eaters, at least my two are, i wonder if i can get trial packs first?
