Yesterday ended with Our little Gadget man hurting himself. We are still not sure how he did it but he dislocated his left hip. He had to be put under so that they could put it back into place. He is now resting over night at the vets. He is so tiny it scares us because if this doesn't work he will need surgery to put a pin in his hip. We are praying for him to fully recover. He will have to have his leg taped up for 5 to 7 days and he will need us to do everything for him. We will be on 24 hour gadget watch... He has his play pen for the dining room/living room during the day and I am making hi a bed in a big tote for at night for beside my side of the bed. That way he will be comfortable and confined but I won't have to move his bed every morning and every night. He is only 3 1/2 pounds so this is a very serious issue for him. Their hip joints aren't that big and most of the time they have to put a pin in the hip to hold it into place and that means surgery.

Poor little guy! I hope he recovers well and won't need surgery.

Awww I hope the little guy heals without surgery.

Our Pomeranian dislocated her hip and had to have surgery. Recovery was a slow road, but she pulled through like a trooper. Good luck.
