Femoral head ostectomy and Hip dislocation

Postby Chow.Bella » Thu Apr 05, 2018 7:21 am

Hello all,
This is my first post here.

I have a 1 years old beautiful Chow Chow named Bella.

2.5 months ago, Bella dislocated her hip while playing with another dog. She was operated and her hip was relocated and attached to the joint using some kind of metal wire (I’m sorry I don’t know the exact terms).

Unfortunately, she dislocated her hip again yesterday. The doctors suggested 2 operations: Hip replacement or femoral head ostectomy.
I wanted to ask if there is someone here with a sad and similar story to mine or if someone knows if femoral head ostectomy will be a good option for a chow chow.

Thanks in advance!
