Hip Dysplasia & Total Hip Replacement
We are the first hospital in the region to start a program of this caliber. Canine Total Hip Replacements have been performed successfully in dogs for decades. With advances in technology, you can expect an approximate 90% success rate, which results in an excellent quality of life and the ideal solution for dogs affected with hip dysplasia.
Hip replacements can be performed as early as one year of age, simply because dogs don’t live as long as humans. Several other surgical interventions that your pet may be a candidate for include: triple pelvic osteotomy, juvenile pubic symphysiodesis, or femoral head and neck ostectomy. If your pet is diagnosed with hip dysplasia, a consultation with a boarded veterinary surgeon to discuss the pros and cons of treatment strategies is recommended right away. Some of the surgical options are time sensitive, and the progression of hip dysplasia may render the procedure suboptimal.
If your pet suffers from hip dysplasia and you are interested in a total hip replacement, we encourage you to schedule a consult today to learn more. We are offering incentives for our initial group of candidates.
