Henry requires a surgery called Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO). The reason dogs require this surgery is typically degeneration of the femur head and arthritis. Henry has recently been having more issues with his hind end causing him to fall down the stairs, troubles jumping in and out of the vehicle and pain associated with arthritis.
He is currently on Synovial chews that have glucosamine, msm, chondriton. This all helps with arthritis and joint health.
The surgery will remove the femur head in both legs - the vet will do each leg separate to allow time for healing. Dogs that have this surgery are usually up in a few days and using the leg. Exercise shouldn't be limited as this can cause further issues. This surgery will cost approximately $2000.
