Brecc was 10 months old when diagnosed. His owners and veterinarian were concerned his pain could no longer be controlled. On May 5, 2010, at 11 months of age, Brecc had a total hip replacement on his right hip. His owners reported that within 10 days he was now very lame on his left and was using his right leg preferentially. On May 19, 2010, two weeks after his first operation, his left hip was replaced.
