3337. Craniodorsal hip luxation of a poodle

Jan 9, 2018

Craniodorsal hip luxation is usually due to trauma. In this poodle, a helper stepped on the back, dislocating the left hip. Vet 1 tried closed reduction (without surgery) but the hip dislocated again. FHO (Femoral hip osteotomy) was recommended.
