Say hello to Pitzel! This adorable 11 year old poodle was referred to MVS to repair recurrent hip dislocation and remove an ear mass. Dr. Potanas and his Vet Tech Mimi performed surgery and he’s recovering very well at home.
Hip dislocation in dogs is very common. Keep an eye for the following signs:
Inability to bear full weight on the limb
Excessive mobility of the limb
Crackling noise (crepitus) at the joint
Shortening of the limb
