Stanley the youngest dog in the UK to have hip replacement
Stanley the 10-month-old cocker spaniel puppy who is the youngest known dog to undergo a full hip replacement in the UK. Vets in Birmingham, UK, found that when he was aged just 5 and a half months old that he was suffering from a rare condition which meant his hip joints were slowly disintegrating, leaving him unable to walk and in a tremendous amount of pain. Stanley underwent the successful operation and now is free from pain and not on any medication. The puppy is also looking for a new home as his previous owners had to give him up due to a change in circumstances. Stanley is now hoping for a new home whilst he recovers at the Hollytree Kennels.
