1158. Left perineal hernia and right hip dislocation

This old Pom had a right hip dislocation and a big swollen left perineal hernia. The dog can pee and poop "normally" but cannot walk normally.

"The vet said that since the dog could pee and poop normally, I did not need to do any surgery on the perineal hernia. I had some financial considerations.  But it has got much bigger in size!  Now my Pom hops on 3 legs! What to do?"

"Perineal hernia repair is more important as it can be life-threatening when the herniated intestines or bladder get twisted."
