Have you seen a finer looking , more handsome beast in your life? No, you haven’t. Some sad news about Max. At the grand old age of 3, the vets think he has osteoarthritis and may need a hip replacement. We are understandably rather gutted about this, as is, I’d imagine, Max.
He has to see a specialist in Labrador bones first (which are prone to this sort of thing), but we are hoping we can possibly manage his pain and try other things like acupuncture before we have to book him in for surgery. We also face an anxious wait to see if our pet insurance will cover this.
So, in the meantime, we wait and see how things progress. If you’d like to contribute towards his (hopefully full) recovery, then we’re having a 20% off sale over at Miso Funky. It applies to everything, so if you were thinking of picking up some cross stitchery, now would be a good time! You can use the code MAX20 until the 31st August and snag the discount. Please, tell your friends!
The first step is to buy him a new memory foam bed as this should help relieve stress on his joints when he’s getting up and down. The next step is to try to stop wincing and worrying every time he moves.
