I have a female St Bernard, Casey. When she was 4 months old, we took her to the Westville hospital and she was said to have a problem with her hips -  bone fragmentation.
The nurse said that because she is a large breed she will have lots of difficulties to walk later and will have to be put down in a few months and she will only have to eat chunks - NO home cooked meals.
We had a second opinion and the other vet said the same. When my mum and I talked afterwards, we were amazed that while the doctor was speaking, at exactly the same moment, the thought 'Whose report do you believe?' slipped into our minds. 'The report of the LORD'
The next day my mum heard a message on TBN: "The earth is the Lordís and everything in it." Psalm 24 verse 1. From then we kept praying! Today Casey is 5 years old, running around and getting up to mischief.
I am so thankful that she has come into my life. While I write you she is sleeping in front of my bed snoring.
