William Needs Hip Help
William is a sweet little terrier that came to us with numerous health concerns but the most pressing issue is his pain. It was unclear what the source of the pain was so we consulted with numerous specialists and it was determined that he has a fractured bone in his right hip socket. An old injury that healed badly. Additionally he has luxating patellas in both knees (wobbly dislocating knee caps.) The knee issue is common in small dogs and often doesn't need surgical correction, but the hip issue is impacting the knee issue. A corrective surgery called FHO is needed to fix the broken hip bone and alleviate the discomfort. With the hip surgery and a diet to lose a few pounds, William should be feeling much better very soon and the knees will hopefully be a non-issue in the future.+ Read More
