Milo is a super sweet eight-month-old Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. He was adopted along with his sister, Luna, and his owners noticed Milo wasn’t as active as she was, even though he seemed like he wanted to play. They then realized he seemed to be in pain when attempting to walk, run, or play.
It turns out Milo has severe joint disease — specifically hip and elbow dysplasia. Even though he’s just a baby, he moves as if he is a senior dog with arthritis.
His owners learned Milo would need state-of-the-art arthroscopy and joint replacement surgeries, and came to ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital to meet Dr. Laurent Guiot in the Bone & Joint Center.
Dr. Guiot presented Milo’s family with treatment options and they agreed surgery would be Milo’s best shot at walking, laying, and playing comfortably. Milo had his first procedure recently, on his elbows, and did well!
Can’t get enough of this cutie? Stay tuned for updates on his journey!
