Hip Replacement On The Horizon

1701 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  moribelle
Michael right hip is deteriorating and has an appointment June 9th with an Orthopedic Surgeon and a Pulmonologist at Dallas's referral only specialities Hospital/Clinic. Our regular vet is expecting a total hip replacement will be suggested. The Pulmonologist is involved because Michael is a Mega-e dog.

I would really appreciate your suggestions, experiences, comments and anything in particular I should discuss with them that I might not think to ask about. I was told the cost should be in the $2000-3000 range and I am wondering if that amount seems appropriate?

Several of us have been through hip replacement with our dogs and are happy to help you.
Find out if they do cemented or cementless THRs.
What a lucky dog to have you. Mega E and HD---you are earning your angel wings!

Recovery from THR is not as bad as you think. Time goes by very fast once you have a routine down. Rudy's surgery was $3800 plus followup x rays etc.
