A 1-year-old Border Collie dislocates her right hip

Aug 5, 2015

The Border Collie was limping on her right hind limb this morning. X-rays show the right femoral head has dislocated entirely out of the right hip joint. Surgery is advised. The chances of being back to normal without surgery are slim. Surgery and anaesthesia done. Femoral head was excised.

The owner came as the dog had swallowed a rubber toy.
I asked about the time it takes the border collie to recover normal gait after femoral head excision.
"She took 3 months to recover and walk normally!"
