3400. Hip dislocation of a Cavalier King Charles - Ehmer Sling

1.  FINAL VIDEO:  Hip dislocation of a Cavalier King Charles - EHMER SLING.
(Error in the title: Hip dysplasia of a Cavalier King Charles).

Physical examination locate site of lameness. X-rays show the dislocation of the left hip. (Error in the video filename: "Dysplasia" is incorrect. The correct name should be dislocation). This video shows the discussion of the treatment of hip dislocation with an intern. Hip dislocation is treated by using an Ehmer Sling or by Surgery (FHO). The Cavalier King Charles is treated with an Ehmer Sling. There is no surgery. The surgery is called femoral head osteotomy (FHO) or femoral head excision to create a false joint without pain. In this way, the dog can walk almost normally without limping or dragging the dislocated foot. However the cost quoted by Singapore vets varies from S$2,000 - $4,000. The Border Collie had surgery (FHO) and follow up one year later showed that he is walking and running almost normally. That means he is not limping or dragging his foot. The owner is pleased with the outcome. Videos are at: Surgery: FHO 1. A Border Collie has hip dislocation comes to Toa Payoh Vets. The dog had successfully recovered after FHO but the treatment video is not shown here

A Border Collie after FHO one year later. The owner was happy with the outcome as the dog was not lame.
