several years ago, my chocolate lab was hit by a car. she had surgery & her hip is pretty much wired & pinned together. Shortly after surgery, they removed part of the pins. Now she is always digging and scratching. It looks like one spot on her butt is always irritated. I have done some reading and thought maybe this was some sort of an internal infection. Is there anything that I could do besides take her back for more surgery? She's got to be at least 10 years old. I have taken her to the local vet several time but he doesn't have any answers.
I recommend that you bring your pet to an orthopedic surgeon for a second opinion. The pins may be causing disconfort. Thanks, vetcare
