Wylie the Black Lab recently had surgery for hip dysplasia and degenerative joint disease (poor guy!).
Hip dysplasia is a condition that occurs when the ball-in-socket joints do not perfectly fit together and can cause pain, limping, and other mobility issues. It may occur in one or both hips and must be treated with surgery and costs can range from $2,000 to $7,000.

Wylie is still under 1 year old, so it’s a good thing his owners enrolled him with pet insurance as soon as possible!
