Hip Dysplasia: FHO vs. TPO
Hey guys. Athena is 8 months old, 23in and weighs 55lbs. So right after Christmas, we noticed she was starting to limp, took her in on January 4th to have her hips examined where the vet said she was really tight, especially on the right but since she was still really active to just watch it and have her rest a bit more. Fast forward 2 weeks and she starts with the bunny hopping. X-ray was done today and bingo, we have hip dysplasia with short femoral necks. My poor baby!
I've done plenty of research on both the double/triple pelvic osteotomy and the femoral head osteotomy. Now I need personal experience and stories of dogs who have undergone either of these procedures. How was the surgery, any complications, recover time, therapy post surgery, long term effects, and residual pain.
Thanks in advance!!
