A cavalier king charles dislocates her left hip




August 11, 2015.

Unusual behaviour led to left hip dislocation.
For the past 7 years, this female CKC must jump up and hit the wall for a while before squatting  down to poo. She lives in an apartment and was not seen jumping up and down the sofa or had a fall from the table, according to the owner.

So, the hip dislocation was attributed to this behaviour.

The owner agreed to a closed reduction. In this procedure, Dr Daniel anaesthesized the dog, put back the femoral head into the hip and splinted up the dog's leg. The dog is at home now. If closed reduction does not work, then surgery is needed.
