I have a 2 year old Male Lab that has been diagnosed with degenerating bone desease.  He is a pointing Lab that would be my best friend even if he didn't hunt!  Mellow, smart and just a joy to be around.  My question is;  Do any of you have or been around a dog that has had a bone fused?  What are the dogs limitations?  IE, range of motion tolerance of pain, swimming abilities, etc.?  It looks like he is going to have his rear left hock joint fused to stop the degeneration.  Putting him down is OUT and making him comfortable and able to hunt as much as possible is definitley IN.  I've talked to a couple of Specialists and had different responses.  Thanks for any help......Hronk
