Understanding Hip Dysplasia in Pets
Hip dysplasia is a common orthopedic condition that affects the hip joint in dogs and, less commonly, in cats. It occurs when the hip joint does not develop properly, leading to instability, abnormal wear and tear, and degeneration of the joint over time. This can result in pain, difficulty walking or running, lameness, and decreased quality of life for your pet.
Comprehensive Hip Dysplasia Surgery for Pets
At Ark Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive hip dysplasia surgery options tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual pet. Our surgical interventions may include:
1. Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO): FHO is a surgical procedure where the femoral head (the ball part of the hip joint) is removed. This eliminates the painful bone-on-bone contact in the hip joint and allows the formation of a false joint, providing pain relief and improved mobility.
2. Total Hip Replacement (THR): In severe cases of hip dysplasia, total hip replacement may be recommended. This involves replacing the affected hip joint with an artificial hip joint. THR provides long-term pain relief and restores normal joint function, allowing pets to regain their mobility and quality of life.
3. Rehabilitation and Post-operative Care: Following hip dysplasia surgery, our veterinarians provide comprehensive rehabilitation plans and post-operative care guidance. This may include physical therapy, exercise regimens, pain management strategies, and follow-up examinations to monitor your pet's progress.
