Amber loves to jog with me. We run for about an hour five days a week; she is unleashed. During the last 8 years since her hip replacement, Amber has run approximately 8000 miles. I suspect she may be the record holder for the most miles run by a dog on a total hip replacement.
I hope this information will be useful to you and will show other dog owners that dogs can truly have “quality life” after hip replacement.
Another year has passed and Amber Hoff continues to thrive. The enclosed photo of Amber Hoff was taken on her 12th birthday. She is now 14 1/2 years young. As you can see, she is doing very well. She still acts like a pup. You will recall that you replaced her left hip.
