found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Once the femoral head and neck are removed, the head of the femur is not replaced as with most other hip surgeries; the surrounding muscles and developing scar tissue work to support the area and act as a false joint. This means that now when the limb is moved, the forces are transferred to the pelvis rather than the leg itself. FHO surgery requires no implants. The procedure causes the leg to be slightly shorter than the unaffected leg, although amazingly, most dogs return to close to normal activity after the surgery.
Thankfully, Brandy has recovered completely. She is able to run and play just as any other dog. Brandy is a sweet girl who gets along great with kids and other dogs and loves to snuggle. She seems curious about cats but tolerates them.
